Any scholarly article that shows the difference between and O and and A in digestion. My friend BT O is complaining that she does not have enough acid, I know she does but need to show her in print. She is already to take HCL to raise her stomach acid.
Rolls her eyes at the BTD.

Something to keep in mind - while most O's as a group have plenty of stomach acid, it is possible for individual O's to have low stomach acid, for a variety of reasons. Not likely but clearly possible.

My NP has me on Betaine H......something he saw in my blood work. I think it was my protein level, but couldn't be sure.

Here's one on gastrin, a hormone that stimulates secretion of gastric acid by cells in the stomach:

Quoted from Melissinos K, Alegakis G, Archimandritis AJ, Theodoropoulos G. Serum gastrin concentrations in healthy people of the various ABO blood groups. Acta Hepatogastroenterol (Stuttg) 1978 Dec;25(6):482-486.

The concentrations of gastrin were measured by the RIA method in the sera of 121 healthy Greek volunteers of both sexes and of different ABO blood groups, aged 20--70 years. The determinations took place in a fasting state in all the individuals and 10 min and 40 min after a test meal in 42 of them. No significant differences were found in the mean concentrations of gastrin in the fasting state and after the meal between the various ABO groups. There was an increase in the mean concentrations of gastrin in all the groups after the meal. Nevertheless, this was significant 40 min after the meal in the groups A and B whilst in the group O and in the groups A, B and AB considered together this significant increase had appeared already 10 min after the meal.


Gastric acid could be low in an O, depending on general health, eating habits, and many other factors.  There is more to digestion than just choosing the right foods.  A lot can be done by improving the connection between the brain and the body when eating to ensure that the right signals are sent to provide the right substances for proper digestion.  

Supplementing with HCl can definitely help, but does not necessarily address the root of the problem because it simply adds what is missing, but does not change the reason for its lack.  There are lots of other ways to train the body to produce more acid and enzymes and to produce them when needed.

I'd be interested in hearing about these options
Thank-u

Examples:
- Take time to sit down and eat slowly, while calm
- Chew a lot (digestion begins in the mouth)
- Avoid eating when stressed, agitated, on-the-go
- View and smell food before eating
- Don't overeat
- Don't drink liquids with meals
- Follow basic food combining principles
- Ensure adequate nutrition and especially protein (enzymes are made of amino acids, which come from protein in the diet)
- Begin with easy-to-digest food (eg: cooked only, no beans, less fat, small portions) and gradually build back other foods
- Use bitters or apple cider vinegar before meals and then gradually tapering these off

There are also some good protocols to follow, depending on need, like Stomach Health and Intestinal Health.
