Seafood for Blood Type A
Eat seafood baked, grilled, or poached to obtain its full nutritional value.
Fish is high in minerals such as zinc, iodine, and selenium, which keep the body running smoothly. Iodine is essential for the thyroid gland, while selenium creates enzymes that protect cell walls from cancer-causing free radicals and helps prevent DNA damage caused by radiation and some chemicals. Fish is also a source of vitamin A for healthy skin and eyes and vitamin D to help the body absorb calcium.
Eating seafood high in DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids—mackerel, salmon (wild has more omega-3s than farmed), sardines, sturgeon, lake trout, tuna—two to three times weekly is recommended. Including fish as a regular part of a balanced diet has been shown to help symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and lower the risk of heart disease.
