Blood plays an integral part in our body as it carries oxygen from the lungs to our blood cells as well as keeps our body in balance. Hence on the occasion of World Blood Donor Day, we would like to discuss a bit more about how impurities are formed in our blood, how to avoid them by using ayurvedic herbs and recipes that you can add to your diet.
What causes impurities in our blood?
As a result of our modern lifestyle, staying up late at night, eating junk food, and skipping breakfast has become the norm, but these habits are among the reasons that impurities are formed in our blood. In addition to the laid-back lifestyle, bacteria living in the environment, living in congested areas, and consuming too much coffee, tea or liquor can also have the same effect.
