Description
  • [0001]
    This application is a continuation of Ser. No. 09/468,819, now U.S. Pat. No. ______.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    The prior art regarding this invention arises from distinct areas not heretofore combined to create new and useful formula sets or new and useful improvements thereof regarding Dietary Supplements for Each Antigen Specific Blood Type.
  • [0003]
    This invention relates to the evolving science that blood type is a mirror of the genetic code with respect to the predisposition to disease. Evidence is mounting that indicates that this predisposition to disease can be overcome through diet and nutrition.
  • [0004]
    Albert M. Fleischner, Ph.D., has a doctorate in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Rutgers University and has had over thirty years experience in the pharmaceutical industry with firms such as Schering-Plough Corporation, Roberts Pharmaceutical Corporation, Lehn & Fink Division of Sterling Drugs, Bradley Pharmaceutical Corporation, Amerchol Division of CPC and the Goen Group companies. He has a number of published papers and a previously granted patent.
  • [0005]
    Blood is essential for life. It carries oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body, and it carries carbon dioxide and other waste products back to the lungs, kidneys and liver for disposal.
  • [0006]
    Anthropologists have speculated that the blood types evolved due to changes in diet, culture and different environmental factors. Each blood type manifests certain particular attributes, which are characterized by strengths and weaknesses. One of the most important components, which helped determine the evolution of blood type, was what foods were available as mankind evolved.
  • [0007]
    Blood Type O is considered the original and oldest of all blood types. Years ago, animals were the main source of food. Therefore, blood type O got most of their nutrition from meat so that their diet was high in protein and low in carbohydrates. However, it was enriched with fruit and vegetables. Blood Type O's generally have higher stomach acid aiding in the digestion and metabolism of meats and most other foods. This is how our original ancestors were able to survive. People with blood type O are more prone to stomach ulcers and irritation of the stomach lining. They also have a greater resistance to blood clotting and have the thinnest blood of all blood types, as is generally known in the art. See generally, D'Adamo, P.—Eat Right For Your Type, G. P. Putman's Sons, 1996; D'Adamo, P.—Cook Right For Your Type, G. P. Putman's Sons.
  • [0008]
    The first mutation from blood type O was designated blood type A. This evolution took place because the original meat eaters migrated to areas where meat was less abundant. Thus, forcing our ancestors to survive on a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Due to the change in diet and environment, persons with blood type A have very sensitive immune and digestive systems. These individuals normally generate lower levels of stomach acid.
  • [0009]
    The second mutation was designated blood type B. This evolved as our ancestors migrated across the many continents leading to a nomadic existence. Blood type B may have initially mutated in response to these changes in climate. People from this blood type generally have balanced immune systems and respond well to stress. They have the ability to tolerate a wide diversity of foods.
  • [0010]
    The last of the four major blood types is blood type AB. This evolved through the intermingling of type A and type B. People with this blood type have inherited the attributes of both blood type A and B. It is for this reason that their immune systems are much more complex than those of any other blood group.
  • [0011]
    The underlying differences, which characterize each known blood group, are as follows:
    Blood Type Blood Type Blood Type Blood Type
    O A B AB
    red red red red
    blood blood blood blood
    cell cell cell cell
    | | |
    A B AB
    (antigen)□ (antigen)□ (antigen)
  • [0012]
    Our immune system contains many antigens (substances which stimulate the production of antibodies against foreign invaders). One of those antigens resides in our blood type. Each blood type contains a different antigen. The blood specific antigens are extremely important. All red blood cells contain an antigen specific for your blood type with the exception of blood type O which has no real antigenicity. This is because blood type O was the first blood type from which the others evolved. The antigen of blood type O that protrudes from the surface of our red blood cells is made up of long chains which ends in fucose. This sugar, by itself, has no antigenicity.

    We now discuss in detail the most preferred versions, variants or embodiments of the invention. First, a few words on terminology. The claim term “a” includes one and more than one. The claim term “label” is used as defined in the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder. At this time, I currently lack sufficient knowledge to say whether or not Larch tree bark is safe for the claimed uses here; thus, my claims, and the claim terms “vitamin,” “mineral,” “herb or other botanical,” “amino acid,” “dietary substance” and “concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract or combination of these ingredients” accordingly do not encompass Larch bark powder nor the butyrate derivative thereof. We now turn to discussing in great detail the best (or “preferred”) versions (or “embodiments”) of my invention.

  • [0019]
    The scientific rationale for the formulation is as follows:
  • [0020]
    Vitamin K assists in the normal clotting of blood, which is beneficial for people with blood type O, since they have fewer clotting factors in their blood. It is necessary for bone formation and repair, and for the promotion of healthy liver functions.
  • [0021]
    Green tea leaf extract may lower the risk of cancer by neutralizing and protecting cells against mutation from cancer causing agents, and by protecting against free radical damage. The antioxidant effect of green tea may protect against cardiovascular diseases and it lowers cholesterol levels. It also helps fight mental fatigue and promote longevity.
  • [0022]
    Hawthorn berry is a cardiovascular tonic. It dilates the blood vessels, which helps the blood flow through the arteries and lowers high blood pressure. The herb helps the heart pump more efficiently and it may help lower cholesterol levels.
  • [0023]
    Pancreatin 4X are enzymes that help digest and absorb foods. These enzymes are 4 times stronger than the usual USP standard. They are beneficial for ulcers, colitis, and Crohn's disease, all medical conditions linked to people with blood type O.
  • [0024]
    Slipper elm bark and Deglycyrrhizinated licorice root soothe inflamed mucous membranes (demulcent effect) of the stomach, bowel, and urinary tract. Both herbs are beneficial for heartburn, ulcers, and other digestive disorders such as colitis or Crohn's disease.
  • [0025]
    Linden flower provides support to the circulatory system, thus improving blood circulation. It is believed to help reduce stress and muscle tension, having a calming effect on the nervous system. In some instances, the herb helps to lower blood pressure.
  • [0026]
    Sarsaparilla root increases energy and, possibly, sexual stamina. It protects against harm from radiation exposure and regulates hormonal levels. The herb has diuretic properties, helping the kidneys rid the body of excess uric acid.
  • [0027]
    Peppermint leaf and Hops strobile aid in healthy digestion by assisting in the relaxation of the muscles of the digestive tract. The herbs stimulate gastric juices and the stomach lining, thus allowing food to be digested more efficiently, providing more support to the blood type O digestive system.
  • [0028]
    Ginger root is antioxidant that stimulates the immune system and aids in healthy digestion. It increases stomach acid secretion, cleanses the colon, and stimulates circulation. The herb has anti-inflammatory properties that may help alleviate pain in those suffering with inflammatory diseases of the joints, a blood type O medical risk.
  • [0029]
    Fenugreek seed has been used for centuries for digestive problems. It acts as a laxative and lubricates the intestine. It may have a mild anti-inflammatory effect making it effective for arthritis symptoms. The herb may also reduce cholesterol levels and help diabetic symptoms.
  • [0030]
    Parsley leaf contains a substance that helps prevent the multiplication of tumor cells, and is used as a digestive aid. The herb is good for high blood pressure and asthma, a condition associated with blood type O. It is also helpful for congestive heart failure and kidney disease.
  • [0031]
    Mulberry fruit helps to increase stamina.
  • [0032]
    Cayenne Pepper has analgesic activity and promotes proper blood circulation. It soothes the digestive tract and helps relieve ulcers making it a beneficial herb for the person with blood type O.
  • [0033]
    Dandelion root acts as a diuretic and is useful for treating liver and digestive problems. The herb cleanses the bloodstream and liver and increases the production of bile. It assists the pancreas and seems valuable in hypoglycemia and diabetic conditions. It is good for anemia, high cholesterol, and congestive hear failure, and may aid in the prevention of breast cancer. Dandelion is more than just a weed!
  • [0034]
    Quercetin dihydrate is a powerful antioxidant. It helps strengthen cell membranes and stops free radical from causing damage to the body. It may reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and it lowers cholesterol levels. It is a good immune booster, acts as an antihistamine (good for allergy sufferers), and has the ability to reduce inflammation (good for asthma sufferers). This bioflavonoid is also known to reduce the risk of having a stroke, a medical risk for those with blood type O.
  • [0035]
    Bladderwrack kelp helps to regulate thyroid functions, as it is a source of iodine. Iodine is necessary to regulate hormone production. Low levels of thyroid hormone lead to hypothyroidism, a type O medical risk. It is necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in cells. It is also believed to relieve rheumatoid arthritis, and boost energy and immunity.
  • [0036]

    Vitamin A is fat soluble, so that means that your body can store it, in the liver. Its most prominent benefit is to the retina of the eye. That's why it helps fight night blindness and helps the retina adjust to light and dark stimuli. In addition, it maintains the skin and cells that line the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Also, it helps build teeth and bones, and is vital for normal reproduction, growth and development. Vitamin A has also been shown to be crucial to the immune system, including the immune cells lining the digestive tract, ultimately forming an important defense against diseases. By strengthening the immune system, it increases resistance to infections, including colds, sore throats, flu, bronchitis, warts, eye infections, cold sores and shingles, and vaginal yeast infections. It is said that Vitamin A might also help the fight against certain cancers and enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy.
