Plasma is a liquid portion of whole blood which contains Water +Protein + Red Blood Cells + white blood cells & Platelets(thrombocytes)

Platelets are the main functioning cells for blood clot formation & growth factor function. 

Platelet activation plays a key role in improving natural healing process in the body.
