    As we age, cognitive decline becomes more common, leading to issues with memory, problem-solving, and word retrieval. Previous research has shown that certain foods and spices, such as berries, oily fish, and turmeric, can help improve brain function. Now, researchers from Tohoku University in Japan have found that the compound 6-MSITC found in wasabi may enhance cognitive function in older adults.

    Study on the Effects of Wasabi

    For this study, researchers recruited 72 Japanese adults between the ages of 60 and 80. Study participants were asked to either take a wasabi tablet including 0.8 milligrams of 6-MSITC or a placebo tablet each night before going to bed for 12 weeks. Participants were then given cognitive and memory tests before and after the 12 weeks to measure the impact of the wasabi tablet on their cognitive function.
