7 Interesting Facts You NEED to Know About Your Blood Type

 Humans hold four different blood type groups, each telling a story of an individual’s heritage, what foods are best suited, and even what exercises give the most significant results for mind, body, and soul.


The four types are: A which is for Agrarian, B for Bavarian, O for Original hunter, and AB is the most advanced blood type and has the healthiest immune system.


Foods that benefit your blood type:


  • Blood type A: Mostly vegetable-based diet with some fish, chicken, and yogurt. Avoid legumes, spicy food and coffee.
  • Blood type B: Most suitable food to eat: dairy products, mutton, fish, vegetables, tea and grains. Avoid alcohol, preservatives, and noisy places.
  • Blood type O: You should eat meat, fish, vegetables. Avoid dairy, processed meats, and over-eating.
  • Blood type AB: This is considered the new blood type and science says they can digest anything efficiently. It is recommended to eat organic, fresh live foods, as eating fried oily foods take away from your energy.


Blood type and personality:


  • Blood type A: Kind, organised, efficient, leaders
  • Blood type B: Meditative, adaptable, helpful, action-oriented
  • Blood type O: Sound, confident, attentive, empathetic
  • Blood type AB: Rational, relaxed, secure, forward thinking


Blood type and stress:


  • Blood type A: Highly sensitive to high cortisol and takes long time to recover from stress. Drinking some water helps to calm down.
  • Blood type B: Mostly peaceful, but reaches the limit and has an intense swing to high levels of cortisol. Breathing helps to return to balance.
  • Blood type O: Susceptible to an eruption of anger, because of their primordial ancestry. Reflecting something peaceful helps to restore calmness.
  • Blood type AB: Manages stress very well, can become frustrated at the worst. Activity such as walking helps loosen built-up tension.


Blood type and fat:


  • Blood type A: Will increase weight from meats and sugars.
  • Blood type B: Is ill-affected by fried foods and gluten.
  • Blood type O: Gains fat from irregular eating.
  • Blood type AB: Gains fat from inactivity.


Blood type and Mate:


RH Factor is the second most crucial blood group system, after ABO consist of 50 specified blood-group antigens, of which D, C, c, E, e are the five most significant. A.K.A. RH Factor, RH Positive, RH Negative which indicates the D antigen only.


RH positive has the D antigen, and RH negative is missing the D antigen.


In pregnancy, the RH factor can cause difficulties such as:


  • Hemolytic Disease- a disruption of red blood cells
  • Erythroblastosis Fetalis- generating immature red blood cells, in the fetus.
  • This happens when the fetus or the fathers’ blood type is mismatched with that of the mothers (i.e.. typically the mother being RH-negative and the father RH-positive).


The mother gets injected with RhoGAm or Rho (D) which is a sterile solution (made from human blood plasma) at 28 weeks of gestation and within 72 hours after birth to evade the development of antibodies from the mother towards the fetus (an allergic reaction may occur).


The injection acts as a vaccine that contains RH-positive blood, the mothers’ body then detects these antibodies and responds as though the immune system had previously taken action against the “foreign” Rh-positive red blood cells.


It is, therefore, distracting the mothers’ immune system from attacking the fetus.


Blood types and transfusions:


Blood type compatibilities


  • AB is the universal blood type receiver but can donate only to AB.
  • A can receive blood type from A or O group and can donate to A or AB.
  • B can receive blood type from B or O group and can donate to B or AB.
  • O can only receive from blood type O and is the universal blood group donor.
  • People with type O RH D negative blood type are usually called universal donors, and those with type AB RH D positive are described as universal recipients.


Plasma compatibility


  • AB can only get plasma from AB and is the universal plasma donor to each blood group.
  • A can receive from A and AB, but can only donate plasma to A and O.
  • B can receive plasma from B and AB, but can only donate to B and O.
  • O is the universal receiver, but can only donate plasma to O.


Type O plasma carrying both anti-A and anti-B antibodies can only be given to O receivers. Conversely, AB plasma can be given to subjects of any ABO blood type, due to not containing any anti-A or anti-B antibodies.
