Optimize Your Digestion: Blood Type Specific Recommendations

The entire microbial ecosystem of the digestive tract is under the influence of your blood group. Blood type genetics not only influence the levels of digestive juices and enzymes needed to efficiently metabolize food, they program the cellular characteristics of our entire digestive tract.

Many foods contain components that can react directly with the blood group antigens, resulting in inflammation and the production of toxins. Other foods address susceptibilities and strengthen our bodies against these weaknesses. Good digestion results not only from choosing the right foods for our bodies, but also by keeping our digestive systems tuned and balanced so that the interplay of all important elements, such as digestive juices and hormones, are optimized for maximum nutrient absorption and regular elimination.

The following are protocols for healthy stomach and optimal digestion. Use protocol for 4 weeks.
