Type O : Beverages & Supplements


MISCELLANOUS BEVERAGES
The problem that coffee poses for Type Os is in the increased levels of stomach acid it produces. Type Os have plenty of stomach acid all their own; they really don’t need help. If you are a coffee drinker, begin to gradually cut down on the amount consumed each day. The ultimate goal should be to eliminate drinking coffee altogether. The common withdrawal symptoms, such as headache, fatigue and irritability won’t occur if you wean yourself off it gradually.

HIGHLY BENEFICIAL

AVOID
Soda water

TYPE O SUPPLEMENT ADVISORY
The role supplement – to add nutrients that are lacking in your diet and to provide extra protection where you need it. The supplement focus for Type Os is :

-          Supercharging the metabolism
-          Increasing blood clotting  activity
-          Preventing inflammations
-          Stabilizing the thyroid

With the Type Os tendency to develop inflammatory joint problems and arthritis the need for consistent calcium supplementation becomes clear.

Kelp
Iodized salt
Os tend to have unstable thyroid metabolisms, due to a lack of iodine. This causes weight gain, fluid retention and fatigue.

Avoid
Vitamin A
Acceptable food :
Yellow, orange and dark leafy green vegetables
Since the Os are prone to slower clotting, I would never recommend vitamin A supplement.
Vitamin E
Vegetable oils
Liver
Nuts
Leafy green vegetables
Also tend to complicate Type O tendencies towards slower blood clotting.
