Did you ever wonder why japanese people have a much higher life expectancy than western people in general? There are a lot of factors concerning this matter, but let me tell you that nutrition is probably the most important of them all.
With this in mind I though it would be interesting to write an article about a favourite food of mine: wasabi paste. This goes amazingly well in an interesting blend with sushi and other japanese food.
If you like it then you should know that wasabi also has quite the health benefits, some of which can’t be ignored by anyone.
First of all, the high antioxidant contents make it a swiss knife for your health, as antioxidants and vitamins help in a wide range of things.Cancer prevention is the most important of them, though. And considering the potent effects of the atioxidants in wasabi, like vitamin C and isothiocyanates, you can’t ignore it any longer.
It also helps with your heart health thanks to the vitamin C making the blood vessels more durable and the anti bad cholesterol properties helping in preventing strokes even more and maintaining a healthy circulatory system.
Overall, wasabi should be treated as a powerful weapon to prevent certain diseases, but make sure you eat healthy in general, that is the ultimate secret to health, not some wonder foods solutions.
