Blood Type A Triathletes & Athletes

Blood A Type Triathletes & Athletes 

During mans existence on the earth their was a reduced supply of hunting game food. Humans moved north from the dwindling stocks of Africa.
Communities established rather than hunter gatherer began to grow and become farmers.
Over time this is when blood type A developed to cope with carbohydrates instead of meat as a main part of the diet.

"A" Blood Type differences.
People with A type blood produce low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach but have high amounts of disaccharide digestive enzymes in the intestine with speeds up the digestion of carbohydrates. Many A type people have low levels of alkaline phosphatise in the intestine making it difficult to absorb animal fat & protein.
A types should chew food because recued amounts of stomach acid reduces the efficiency of digestion

"A" blood type person
A types often prefer a safe relaxed happy environment  in a friendly community with routine, so living at a fast pace in a city living alone not even knowing the neighbours can cause a build up of stress which results eventually with healthy problems. Not being able to pin point the reasons for being unhappy moving from a town to a city can be partly due to blood type A.
Everyday lifestyle stress
One of the reasons we sometimes cope better with stress can be because of our choice of foods we have recently eaten.
Cortisol is released when we are stressed which can make the situation even more stressful.
Cortisol can disrupt sleep patterns cause forgetfulness (daytime brain fog) muscle loss and fat gain for those that can’t train to work pressures or injury.
In severe cases cortical can cause obsessive compulsive disorder insulin that is released abnormally which can lead to diabetes.
Type A athletes may over train much easier due to increased levels of cortical that type A people cannot tolerate as well as other types.
