The left side of your heart sends oxygen-rich blood out to the body.
Blood leaves the heart through a big artery called the aorta, as it flows it drops of nutrients and oxygen providing cells with the fuel so they can work properly. The blood picks up carbon dioxide and other waste products away for disposal; solid waste is dropped of at the kidneys while carbon dioxide is disposed in the lunges.The right ventricle pumps the blood to the lungs In the lungs, carbon dioxide is removed from the blood and sent out of the body when we exhale. When we inhale, a fresh breath of oxygen and nutrients enters the blood and the process starts again. The most incredible thing is that it all happens under a minute!
