Recommended Fruits for Blood Type AB

Eat plenty of vitamin C-rich, nutrient-dense, disease-fighting, raw fruits to preserve their full benefits. Eat them alone or one hour apart from any other foods—best time is in the morning, on an empty stomach.

Fruits are generally high in fiber, water, vitamin C, and some high sugars. Regular consumption of fruit is associated with reduced risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease (especially coronary heart disease), stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, cataracts, and some of the functional declines associated with aging.

Diets that include sufficient potassium from fruits and vegetables also help reduce the chance of developing kidney stones and may help reduce the effects of bone loss. Fruits will help lower one’s calorie intake as part of a weight-loss diet.

Buy organic and non-GMO fruits when possible. Eat fruits raw to preserve their full benefits. Most fruits are allowed, although try to emphasize the more alkaline fruits—berries, grapes, and plums, which can help balance the grains that cause acid buildup in muscle tissues.

Type AB’s don’t do well on tropical fruits such as carambolas, mangos, and guavas, but pineapple is an excellent digestive for type AB’s. High mold count in bitter melon makes it difficult for type AB’s to digest.

Acidic oranges cause stomach irritation in the sensitive, alkaline type AB stomach and also interfere with the absorption of important minerals. Grapefruit, although closely related to oranges and an acidic fruit, has positive effects, exhibiting alkaline tendencies after digestion. Lemons help aid digestion and clear mucus from the system.

It is important to include plenty of vitamin C-rich fruits such as litchi, lemon, grapefruit, peaches, and kiwi in your diet, since the body is unable to make vitamin C, and does not store it. Vitamin C is an antioxidant important in stomach cancer prevention.

The following fruits are nutrient-dense powerhouses with the most disease-fighting potential for your type:
