How to Get your Blood Flowing.
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.
Bowl of warm water
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.
Walk up and down a set of stairs for 3 minutes. This will increase your heart rate and in turn increase your blood flow.
Raise your heart rate and complete jumping jacks for 3 minutes.
During collection, massage your hand palm to fingertip every 4 seconds — this allows your blood time to refill at your fingertip.
