Drink water!

Drinking water is the best method to increase your blood flow. We recommend drinking 2 big glasses of water up to 30 minutes before taking your sample.

Place your hand in a bowl of warm water for 3 minutes just before you prick your finger — the warmth will promote the blood to flow easily and naturally.
