Deflect - Lectin Blocker (Blood Type A)
The original shield against lectins. Designed to block problematic food lectins known to negatively impact Blood Type As.
- Select your blood type: O A B AB
Sometimes, Avoids are simply unavoidable.
Meet Deflect A, your first line of defense against lectins in Avoid foods. A class of proteins that bind to the different antigens in each blood type, lectins can harm immune and digestive function. This causes a variety of health problems including intestinal and bowel irritation, bloating, weight gain and lethargy. Shielding your biology from these dangerous molecules is important.
An exclusive blend of glucosamine, chondroitin and D-mannose, Deflect A is crafted for optimal absorption by Blood Type As. Dr. Peter D'Adamo's uniquely designed formula provides specific blocking sugars that attach to receptors on lectins, preventing them from weakening immune and digestive health. Deflect A also includes cranberry and pineapple concentrates to aid in maximum absorption.
- Knocks out specific Type A dietary lectins before they hinder digestion
- Enhances gut health
- Supports proper hormone balance
- Promotes weight loss
- Soothes + balances immune response
Our lectin-fighting team includes:
N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine (NAG)
Acts like a magnet for lectins in foods. When lectins bind to the NAG on your cells, they impair their functioning and promote inflammation. The NAG in Deflect serves as a distractor, picking up stray lectins without interrupting your metabolism.
Becomes smaller peptides upon breakdown in the stomach, resembling the Blood Type A antigen. These molecules can then bind to A-like lectins and prevent attachment in the intestinal tract.
Has a unique structure that can prevent adhesion of certain bacteria including E. coli and influenza virus by binding to them.
While it can't magically turn Avoids into Beneficials, Deflect A may assist in healthy weight loss and the repair of pre-existing lectin damage. With the help of our formula, you can support a balanced digestive system.

Directions: Two (2) capsules with two (2) largest meals per day as a dietary supplement or as directed by a physician. Deflect helps block lectins from Avoid foods known to negatively impact health.
Lectins are naturally occurring proteins found in many common foods that can interact with the cells of the digestive tract, immune system and circulation, and cause damage or interfere with metabolism. They interact with the cell’s surface and can often cause cells to clump, giving lectins the name “molecular Velcro.” Incompatible lectins (from foods on your Avoid list) can attach to your digestive tract and wreak havoc. Potential effects include inflammation, gas, bloating, water retention, weight gain, headaches, fatigue, hormonal imbalance and more. Long before low lectin diets became a hot topic in nutrition, Dr. Peter D’Adamo identified the critical secret to their control: Your Blood Type. Certain foods have lectins that react specifically to a blood type, and The Blood Type Diet helps you understand which foods work best for you. To help prevent harmful lectins from negatively impacting your health, find out your blood type and learn which foods to avoid. The Blood Type Diet Intro Pack helps you get started with an at-home testing kit and Dr. D'Adamo's best-selling book Eat Right 4 Your Type. In addition to following the food list recommendations for Beneficials and Avoids, you can turn to Deflect - Lectin Blocker for cheat days or un-avoidable moments.
Common symptoms of lectin sensitivity include digestive upset, bloating, immune hypersensitivity, fatigue, poor memory/comprehension and hormonal imbalance.
Paradoxically, tissues weakened by prolonged illness will often be more sensitive to food lectins and will usually not fully heal and regenerate until these lectins are removed from the diet and the system has time to heal.
Here’s a quick list of common foods with harmful lectins to avoid for each blood type:
- Blood Type O: Wheat, Soybean Oil, Peanut, Kidney Bean
- Blood Type A: Lima Bean, Tomato, Eggplant, Garbanzo Bean
- Blood Type B: Chicken, Corn, Soy, Lentil
- Blood Type AB: Chicken, Corn, Banana, Fava Bean
