10 Energy Boosting Superfoods for Your Type

Ever feel like your get-up-and-go got up and went? Dr. D’Adamo’s book “Fatigue: Fight it with the Blood Type Diet features individualized plans and strategies for preventing and treating the conditions that cause exhaustion. Especially helpful are the super-beneficial food lists for each blood type for boosting energy.

“The chemistry of blood type continues to provide clues to the biological and genetic mechanisms that control health and disease,” writes Dr. D’Adamo.

Each blood type has different challenges to work through, for example:

Blood Type O’s predisposition to autoimmune thyroid disease – especially hypothyroidism (under production or under utilization of thyroid hormones) – can be a primary factor in fatigue. Long-term stress, without the modifying benefits of exercise, can also be a problem.

Blood Type A is most vulnerable to immune system depletion and one underlying cause is low glutathione levels. Glutathione is the major antioxidant produced inside the cells to protect them from the destructive effects of free radicals.

Blood Type B tends to be susceptible to viral infections, including the viruses that produce autoimmune conditions that zap energy.

Type AB’s, possessing both the A and B antigens, can be compared to having two standing guard at the same gate – this heightens AB’s vulnerability to immune conditions.

The right fuel can provide a boost by giving your cells what they need to generate energy – fill your tank with these power foods.
