Tips for Healthy Cardiovascular

I love to share with you some great information below for each of the four blood types for preventing and treating heart conditions, high blood pressure, controlling cholesterol and vascular problems.

In his book, Cardiovascular Disease: Fight It with the Blood Type Diet, Dr. D’Adamo explains why people with different blood types experience different cardiovascular problems and provides targeted programs for each of the four blood types for preventing and treating heart conditions, high blood pressure, controlling cholesterol and vascular problems. Here are a few tips to keep your ticker in tip top shape!

Type O

  • Minimize consumption of the insulin-mimicking lectins most abundant in grains, such as wheat and corn. These can contribute to metabolic syndrome, a precursor to heart disease.
  • Adopt a vigorous exercise program – this will increase your circulatory efficiency, lower adrenaline and minimize arterial damage.
  • Use supplements intelligently to block the effect of insulin-mimicking lectins, provide antioxidant support and control triglyceride levels.

Type A

  • Eat a diet rich in soy protein, healthy seafood and green vegetables to decrease arterial and venous inflammation.
  • Reduce cortisol levels by engaging in regular calming exercise such as yoga.
  • Avoid red meats and high fat foods – they increase cholesterol, decrease your liver function and increase your risk for heart disease.

Type B

  • Incorporate lean, organic lamb and mutton to your diet. They help build muscle and active tissue mass.
  • If you are a coffee drinker, begin to wean yourself by cutting daily consumption in half, substituting green tea.
  • Try some simple visualization techniques to help control high blood pressure. Do this two to four times daily for five to eight minutes.

Type AB

  • Don’t overdo grains and avoid wheat.
  • Garlic is super beneficial for type AB because of its ability to reduce excess blood clotting factors and because it’s a good source of the amino acid citrulline, a potential precursor to nitric oxide metabolism.
  • Make breakfast your most important protein-rich meal of the day and vary your meal sizes, big breakfast, medium lunch, small dinner.

Incorporate these super beneficial greens into your diet for a dose of heart healthy veggies!
