Very often we only think about our blood type when a doctor asks us what type we are. The truth is, we should all know our blood types. Your blood type is important, not just when you (hopefully never) need a transfusion. It can affect every aspect of your life.
Look at all these things your blood type affects
The most important reason to know your blood type is in case you are in an accident and need to get blood, if you need an organ transplant or a donor. It is a good idea to carry around a card with your bloody type on it, so no time is needed in case you land up in a medical emergency.
Your stomach fat
Different bloody types should follow different eating plans. People with Type A blood usually have bad reactions to food like dairy, meat and shellfish. They often carry excess fat on their belly because of this. They may also suffer from acid reflux, diabetes, bloating and indigestion.
Different bloody types need different nutritional needs. There are several eating plans that are regulated by a person’s blood type.
People with Type O blood tend towards stomach and indigestion problems. They therefore need a high protein and high fibre diet, including lean meat, poultry, fish and vegetables.
People with Type A should include a lot of citrus in their diet, as well as vegetables like broccoli, spinach and garlic, as they have more sensitive immune systems. They need to build their immune system with lots of nutrients and minerals.
Type B blood produces high levels of normal cortisol, the stress hormone. They need to avoid trans-fat, alcohol and vegetable oil.
And Type AB people often lack stomach acid. They need things like apple cider vinegar and Manuka honey which can aid digestion and balance stomach acidity.
It is hard to believe this but it is true. Studies show that people with Type AB blood tend to be rational, strong and unstressed.
People with Type A lean towards kindness and compassion, putting other people’s needs before their own.
People with Type O blood tend to worry a lot but also to be practical and well organized
Type B blood is often found in individuals who are outgoing, friendly and emotionally flexible.
One would not think this is possible but women with Type O blood are not as fertile as other bloody types. Research showed that women in their 30s, prime fertility time, had fewer eggs and had a harder time reproducing.
Are you constantly stressed or angry? Type A blood produces more cortisol than what is required for stable hormones and stress levels are often higher than what is normal.
People with Type O blood may be more susceptible to anger too.
Your blood type can affect the people you choose to hang out with and ultimately, your partner.
Blood is also classified as Rh negative and Rh positive. More than 80% of people are positive and when two Rh people reproduce there are less likely to be problems than when an Rh positive man and an Rh positive woman reproduce.
It is important to know your blood type for reproduction and to get tested so a doctor can avert potential problems.
