30 Bananas a Day!

I've heard different answers to this and wanted to know if anyone here knows what color signifies healthy blood- darker or lighter/brighter red? Does darker/more color mean it's better oxygenated? Have you noticed any changes in your blood since your lifestyle changed?

The reason I brought this question up is because that Wednesday night my nose bled spontaneously while I was driving, and the color of the blood was bright red. It was kind of alarming, since I am used to seeing a darker color from whenever I had ever had nose bleeds before. I read nosebleeds are not too unusual during pregnancy, since my blood volume has increased considerably, but I was still concerned and then curious about the cause of that color. I bled kind of profusely too, with a huge puddle overflowing from my hand, so when I got home, I had a green smoothie my husband made me thinking perhaps I was missing Vitamin K from my blood and needed it for clotting or that my body might need to make more blood after that episode. I had read from someone's post before that during a blood test their blood was dark and how the person administering the blood test commented that his/her blood was rich in oxygen... but I've been reading online that oxyhemoglobin is bright red.

Nonetheless I'll be making sure to eat a lot of fruits and greens. Around that time my nose bled the air was code orange for the high level of pollution in the air and it had been over 100 degrees outside. It finally rained last night.
Blood is brighter red when oxygenated (being carried away from the heart).
Good point! A small arteriole or group of capillaries must have opened, fresh from being pumped from the heart.
Blood tests give us more of a picture than blood colour. As colour can vary according to light and sight.
Yeah, I'm seeing blood color just reflects how recently it was pumped from the heart and not much more.
