You Can Change the Way You Age

This hopeful proclamation opens Dr. D'Adamo's new book Aging: Fight it with the Blood Type Diet. Have you become resigned to a decline in mental clarity, as if it were a natural consequence of aging? How about memory lapses, or those mid-afternoon energetic lulls and mental fogginess? The message in Dr. D'Adamo's Aging is that these assumptions about aging and mental decline do not have to be true for you.

New scientific understanding of the brain and its pathways has uncovered many of the causes of premature aging and brain deterioration. Armed with this knowledge and the Blood Type Diet, you have powerful partners in preventing brain decline and the loss of vitality often associated with advancing years.

Four Keys to Fighting Aging

1. Feed Your Brain

The Blood Type Diet recognizes the variations in the ways individuals digest, metabolize, and utilize nutrients and efficiently eliminate wastes. Incorporate sufficient amounts of key nutrients that promote brain health. Each of the Blood Type Diets includes plenty of antioxidant-rich foods that guard against free radical damage. The B vitamins are also crucial to nervous system function. Essential fatty acids found in fish oils provide fuel for brain metabolism and control inflammation involved in degenerative brain disorders.

Key Anti-Aging Foods For Your Type

Blood Type O

2. Exercise to Reduce Stress and Build Brain Power

Studies clearly show that physical exercise significantly enhances the immune system’s natural killer (NK) cell numbers and protective activities. Exercise also seems to be the great modulator against declines in NK activity with aging. The best exercise depends on your blood type. Your goal? To reduce the overall load on your system, not to exhaust it.

  • Anti-Aging Exercise Guidelines For Blood Type O: Vigorous exercise such as running and aerobics
  • Anti-Aging Exercise Guidelines For Blood Type A: Calming exercise such as Yoga, Tai Chi
  • Anti-Aging Exercise Guidelines For Blood Type B:Choose sports that have mental and physical components such as Tennis, Golf or Martial Arts.
  • Anti-Aging Exercise Guidelines For Blood Type AB:Choose sports that have mental and physical components such as Tennis, Golf or Martial Arts.

3. Cleanse Your System

By balancing the intestinal flora it is possible to restore gastrointestinal health and reduce the inflammatory responses of the system. Friendly intestinal bacteria protect your cells, improve immune function, and have a positive effect on your ability to fully utilize the nutrients in the foods you eat. It is even more beneficial if you consume friendly bacteria specific to your blood type, since bacteria show favoritism for the sugars of one blood type over another.

4. Use Supplementation According to Your Blood Type

With these specific recommendations, in his book, Aging, Dr. D'Adamo considers five areas of nutritional focus: Mitochondrial function and repair, healthy brain cell activity, natural antioxidants, vascular health, and nervous system balance. For complete diet and supplementation lists for your type, refer to Dr. D'Adamo's book, Aging: Fight it With The Blood Type Diet.

Here are some additional tips from Dr. D'Adamo's book, Aging: Fight It with the Blood Type Diet.

Blood Type O Anti-Aging Profile
  • As long as you follow the Blood Type Diet and a regular exercise program, Type O is less vulnerable to most common breakdowns that occur with aging.
  • You have fewer risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
  • Your greatest vulnerabilities involve inflammatory disease, metabolic syndrome, and poor thyroid regulation—most of which can be mediated by diet.
  • Your optimal diet is a high-protein, low-fat diet with limited grains and lots of fruits and vegetables.
Blood Type A Anti-Aging Profile
  • Type A is most vulnerable to a range of conditions triggered by depleted immune function and vulnerability to free radical damage, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and strokes.
  • When you are not eating and living right for your type, you have a tendancy to produce high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which can place extra strain on your heart and contribute to brain decline.
  • Your optimal diet is vegetarian with limited amounts of fish and fowl and greater amounts of healthy grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits. You should avoid red meat altogether and eat plenty of soy foods.
Blood Type B Anti-Aging Profile
  • Type B has a generally good prognosis for healthy aging, as long as you follow diet and exercise guidelines. Your optimal diet includes a balanced mix of meat, fish, dairy, fruits, and vegetatables, with limited amounts of grains and beans. You should avoid chicken, corn, and wheat altogether, and you usually don’t do well with soy foods.
  • Your greatest vulnerabilities at midlife are a tendency for slow-growing viral conditions, urinary tract infections, and insulin resistance—conditions usually mediated by diet.
Blood Type AB Anti-Aging Profile
  • Type AB must negotiate your diet carefully, as you have aspects of both A and B blood. Like Type A, you have a higher risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, and blood clots. Low levels of intestinal phosphatase affect your bone health.
  • Type AB has the highest incidence of osteoporosis of all the blood types.
  • Your optimal diet involves utilizing the best of A and B. That means a healthy mix of fish, soy, some meat and dairy, fruits and vegetables, and specific grains. Like Type B, you should avoid chicken and corn.

The Nitric Oxide Advantage

Nitric oxide, the combination of nitrogen and oxygen, has been shown to influence many of our most basic health processes, even including the speed and ease by which we learn. In our bodies, nitric oxide functions as a signaling molecule. For example it can tell the body to make blood vessels relax and widen. Areas that are known to be influenced by nitric oxide include learning, blood pressure, heart and arteries, immunity and the nervous system. (Found in Nitricycle)

Slowing Mitochondrial Damage with the Alpha Supplements

Studies on patients with dementia have shown that Alpha-Lipoic Acid can have tremendous effects in stabilizing cognitive function. Acetyl L-carnitine, in conjunction with Alpha-lipoic acid, reverses mitochondrial structural decay in the hippocampus region of the bran. It is needed to move fats into your mitochondria (the energy packet within the cell) where they can be used as a source of energy. There is evidence that L-Carnitine also reduces insulin resistance. It lowers oxidative damage, improves mitochondrial function and helps to restore performance on memory related tasks. (Found in Pro-Mitokon A and Pro-Mitokon L)
