The functions of the blood are: to transport oxygen away from the lungs and around the body; and CO2 from the body cells to the lungs. to transport nutrients such as glucose and amino acids from the digestive system to the cells in our bodies. to take waste products such as lactic acid away from the muscles when it's produced by anaerobic respiration; and urea from the liver to the kidneys and bladder. By maintaining a good circulation, the blood flow keeps your core body temperature at a steady 37oC. White blood cells help kill pathogens and microbes that stray into the body. Substances like platelets and fibrin in the blood help to clot wounds
