Type O : Vegetables & Fruits


VEGETABLES, SPROUTS, SOYA PRODUCTS AND FRESH HERBS
Do not simply eat all vegetables indiscriminately. Several classes of vegetables cause big problems for Type Os. For example, the brassica family – cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mustard greens – can inhibit the thyroid function, which is already somewhat weak in Type Os.
Leafy vege = rich in vitamin K (eg kale, collard greens cos lettuce, broccoli and spinach) are very good for Type Os. This vitamin has one purpose only – to help blood clot. Type Os lack several clotting factors,  and need vitamin K to assist in the process.
