The BBC Breakfast host, 46, shared a video from a hospital bed, revealing she had to “clench her bum” in order to get through the process.
She told her followers: “Just done this @givebloodnhs with one of favourite blood takers @willflanders and a record time for me of 5 mins 21 secs for approx 0.5l Woo hoo.
“It is that time again – buttock clenching, leg raising, arm squeezing – giving blood today.
“I am now with Ross who is now used to my skinny veins and makes it absolutely painless.
“I will be up and about after this with my day. So just know, if you want to give blood, you are doing a great thing.”
Naga was presenting the show alongside Jon Kay, with usual presenter Charlie Stayt still missing from the show amid an unexplained absence.

Ben, who presents BBC News and BBC World News, is stepping in as Breakfast’s resident business correspondent in place of Ben Thompson, who announced he was stepping down from the role back in December.
Taking to Twitter, Ben teased the news with a cheeky snap of the Salford-based studios, captioning the snap: “The bright lights beckon…”
