So far my research on the site has shown that green teas are OK for a B and I was really happy to hear that.Now I need to check out my Chlorella, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, spirulina etc etc and make sure everything is compatible for a B plus, secretor unknown.


Chlorella is fine for us
Chia and flax are great
Hemp seeds, I'm not sure but I think so
Spirulina is fine, I think.  

The supplements are listed a lot more in the Genotype diets than in the Blood type diets, so that's why I'm a little unclear on hemp and spirulina.

Green tea is awesome for all types!

I also like green tea. It prevents me from falling asleep better than coffee; if I have green tea late afternoon I have trouble falling asleep at night whereas, if I have a cup of coffee, I still fall asleep at my regular time.

But I love the immediate effect of coffee consumption  .

I love my green tea, too, but I have to doctor it up to get it down in the morning as it makes me feel queasy on an empty stomach.  I use a Stash organice green tea with ginger & lemongrass, and I add a squeeze of lime juice and a teaspoon of agave.  Lately, I've been adding some acai powder as well, which gives it a tart/berry earthy flavor.  I wonder how much caffeine is in green tea (I don't drink decaf) compared to a cup of coffee.     I had no problem whatsover weaning myself off of coffee and getting accustomed to green tea.  I didn't expect that.  I expected caffeine withdrawl headaches, but I didn't have them.  


Stash also makes a green chai you might like.

Green tea is really really awesome!!


A squirt of lemon juice can make green tea five times as awesome (think Dr. Bruce Banner green tea turning into The HULK green tea) ...

Researchers at Purdue University found that adding lemon juice helps more of the unique antioxidants of green tea to stay in the body after digestion. This study compared the effects of different beverage additives on catechins, the naturally occurring antioxidants found in green tea. Mario Ferruzzi, the study's lead author, said that catechins are relatively unstable in a non-acidic environment like the intestines and less than 20-percent often remain after digestion, causing a significant loss of the beneficial catechins in plain green tea. The study determined that pairing lemon juice with green tea has benefits beyond taste enhancement. Plain lemon juice added to green tea increased the maintained catechin levels by more than FIVE times.

The Purdue researchers found that the juice from one-quarter of a medium lemon is all that's needed to really pump up the naturally occurring antioxidants in green tea.

I love green tea and black coffee. Yet, due to my being estrogen dominant (using progesterone cream to balance it out), I am minimizing my caffeine intake. I only drink coffee on my toughest mornings (if I stayed up the night before or slept less than 3 hours) and green tea if I slept less than 5-6 hours and need to stay awake. Otherwise, I am trying to steer clear of caffeine/green tea until my hormones are balanced again.

I may give decaf green tea a shot since I love the flavor.

Very cool Connor. I usually have my green tea with either lemon, lime, or grapefruit juice. Green tea is a genoharmonic combination (extra-healing for me personally according to my SWAMI) with several juices, including lemon, grapefruit, and pineapple. Lime isn't listed but I use it sometimes anyway for variety (especially if limes are cheaper than lemons that week.)

I haven't drunk "naked" green tea since I got my SWAMI. Well, not quite true. Sometimes when I'm out and about, I'll drink plain green tea because it's the only compliant beverage option. But that's after drinking my tea-and-juice earlier in the day.
