Blood is composed of two general parts: The formed elements (RBC, WBC, Platelets) and plasma.

RBC's have a transportation function related to oxygen and to a smaller extent carbon dioxide but other than that virtually everything is transported in the plasma.

These things include:

Proteins produced in the body (particularly the liver)

Nutrients absorbed from digested food from the small intestine


Ions (electrolytes)

Gases and waste products
