You may not have known, but your blood type has an enormous impact on your life. For that purpose, we present you the seven most interesting facts about your blood group:
- The blood type is closely associated with your diet
According to naturopath Peter J. D’Adamo, the different blood groups correspond to different diets. Namely, people with type O are more prone to stomach and digestion issues; therefore, they need to follow a diet based on lean meat, poultry, fish, and veggies.
Moreover, individuals with type A have a sensitive immunity and this is why they need to include a lot of citrus and veggies like spinach, garlic, and broccoli. Those with type B have a higher production of cortisol than others. Therefore, they should exclude trans fats, vegetable oils, and alcohol. And, those who have AB blood type usually lack stomach acid. So, they should consume more apple cider vinegar and manuka honey to increase the stomach acid levels and better the digestion.
- Blood types have to do a lot with one’s personality
According to Asian medicine, people with blood type A are kind and compassionate people who always put others’ needs before their own. On the other hand, in most cases, individuals who are outgoing and friendly have blood type B. And, AB blood type is present in people who are strong, rational, and who don’t worry too much. However, type O individuals worry a lot, but they’re also very organized and practical.
- Blood types affect fertility
According to a study done with several women at the age of 30, those with type blood O are the least fertile.
- Blood types can sometimes be associated with stress and anger
As people with blood type A produce more cortisol than normal, their stress is much higher than in other people, whereas people with blood type O are more susceptible to anger outbursts than others.
- Blood type influences belly fat
People with blood type A experience bloating, acid reflux, poor digestion, and an increased risk of diabetes due to bad reaction to dairy, meat, and shellfish. Therefore, they have the biggest problem when it comes to losing belly fat.
- Blood type is related to the ideal partner for you
Blood is also classified as Rh negative or Rh positive. Hence, 85% of all people are Rh positive, and when two individuals with Rh positive mate, things go well. However, problems can occur when an Rh negative woman is with an Rh positive man. This exposes the baby to potential risk.
- Knowing your blood type is life-saving
In case of an accident, doctors may need to react immediately, and, if you don’t have any documentation with you regarding your blood type, they might not be able to help you. Unfortunately, when blood transfusion is done with a wrong blood type, the individual may experience complications.
