Main Components of Blood

Human blood is basically made up of many different components. These include:

– Platelets that help with blood clotting

– White blood cells that help with fighting infection

– Red blood cells that help with transporting oxygen

– Plasma that provides the body with hormones and nutrients.

– Antibodies in plasma that are used by the immune system to fight bacteria or virus

– Antigens, which are sugars or proteins on the outside of red blood cells [1]
