If you are a blood type O, you probably already know that you have the unique property of being a universal donor: you can give your blood to all groups (A, B, AB and O), but you can only receive blood from individuals belonging to the same category as you. However, it is not your only specificity, some elements of your blood type make you a person truly unique and different from others.
Blood group O: Almost perfect health
It is true that compared to other blood groups you are more likely to contract certain diseases such as gastric ulcers and thyroid gland disorders which often results in problems like water retention, obesity.
However, you generally escape from pathologies such as cardiovascular diseases, memory problems, and cancer. According to the researchers, the blood group O protects against pancreatic cancer because the immune system of this group can better detect and "destroy" the cancer cells than those of group A or B.
Blood Group O: A Warrior Character
However, you are a born leader. You are overflowing with enormous energy and when you set a goal you do not stop until it reaches. These powerful features make you an exceptional and indispensable person to the eyes of your entourage.
In Japan, this blood group has long been linked with a personality out of the ordinary. You could even ask which group you belong to during a job interview! You are often described as someone organized, responsible, committed, focused, conscientious and pragmatic. You are deemed to be a logical person and endowed with perfect qualities to be an outstanding leader. The popular belief is that this is due to the fact that your ancestors were hunters who had to observe and evaluate their environment in order to survive.
Blood group O: Hyperactivity and Impulsivity
You are probably hyperactive and impulsive when you are under pressure and can quickly get you angry in such cases. When this excessive sensitivity is combined with an unhealthy food lifestyle and a relatively sedentary rhythm you are more prone to suffer from the metabolic syndrome. This usually manifests as insulin resistance, slower thyroid activity and increased risk of weight gain. In addition, because you have a higher rate of gastric acid than other blood groups, you have a fragile stomach and a tendency to easily develop ulcers.
Blood group O: How to take care of yourself?
If you are of the O blood group, it is best to avoid the consumption of alcohol and caffeine. The latter can be particularly dangerous for you because it increases the rate of adrenalin that is already naturally high among the people in your group. You should also do regular sports, at least 3 or 4 times a week. Avoid cereals and dairy products because you have trouble digesting them and prefer animal proteins and vegetables.
