What are lectins?

According to an old definition ‘lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins or glycoproteins.’ William Boyd therefore coined the term lectin in 1954, deriving it from the Latin word legere meaning ‘to choose.’ Boyd was also the first researcher to identify the blood type specificity of many common dietary lectins.

Typically, lectins can bind to many of the carbohydrate antigens found in the gut and immune system, causing a variety of health problems. These can include intestinal dysbiosis, bowel hyperpermiability, immune dysfunction, food sensitivities and systemic inflammation. This is usually accomplished by direct agglutination of the target cells. Lectins can occur in very common foods in the diet, and the majority are specific for the carbohydrates of the ABO blood typing system. In one study, the edible parts of 29 of 88 foods tested, including common salad ingredients, fresh fruits, roasted nuts, and processed cereals were found to possess significant lectin-like activity as assessed by hemagglutination and bacterial agglutination assays.

Several common lectins, in particular, wheat germ agglutinin, are known to bind to the insulin receptor and mimick the hormonal effects of insulin on adipose tissue, an under-appreciated action which can account for why individuals on high carbohydrate diets often have difficulty contolling their weight. Thus, lectin blocking is a safe and rational method for enhancing weight loss.One of Dr. D’Adamo’s most popular and foundational formulas, Deflect® has a wide range of applications, including
  • Assisting weight loss
  • Enhancing metabolism
  • Aiding in maintaining the integrity of the digestive system.

When you eat a food containing a protein lectin not Right 4 Your Type, these lectins adhere to carbohydrate receptors throughout the intestines. While the reaction takes place in the gut, the harmful effects can reveal themselves throughout the body, in symptoms ranging from bloating and allergy-like conditions to weight gain and lethargy.

Even if you were to follow the Blood Type Diet®, repeated lectin response leaves behind years of damage. Deflect goes to work right away on existing lectin damage, 'scrubbing' away harmful lectin attachments.

Minimize lectin damage from the avoid foods you eat, and repair existing lectin damage with Dr. D’Adamo’s revolutionary Deflect formulas.

Since each blood type is susceptible to different lectins, Dr. D’Adamo has designed formulas specific to each blood type.

    I feel and see the difference!

    Published by Doreen Johnson on 17th May 2021

    I've taken this for some years, then ran out and thought I was doing good, even from hidden wheat in products. Started bloating out like I was 7 months pregnant and thought I better get back on it. I take one in the morning and another if there could be hidden gluten in something and it worked not only on the bloated abdomen, but I've got my energy back, probably because my body isn't fighting off bad stuff all day or all evening if I just "happen" to have a glass or two of wine.

    Published by Maritza C. Forde on 29th Oct 2014

    I just love this product it does wonders. I wish it was a little bit cheaper but I can honestly say after purchasing a few of these in the past It is worth every penny spent.

    My Insurance eating policy

    Published by Ugo on 23rd Oct 2014

    I travel a lot and it's not always easy to stay away from avoid foods. I always take Deflect with me when I travel and pop 4 to 6 a day to ease bloating and constipation from travel food. I also find it helps with my arthritic knees if I am standing up too long during the day.
