Pancreatic Cancer is normally only diagnosed at the late stages of its development, when it is very difficult to treat.
Because of this, taking Wasabia japonica capsules as a preventative would be a useful addition to everyone’s diet, especially if you are a smoker.
Wasabi, the super-hot green spice that is often enjoyed with sushi, has turned out to be highly toxic to cancer cells. And in this study*, a major component of wasabi, called 6-MITC, suppressed up to 96% of pancreatic cancer cells in-vitro.
Wasabi is actually part of the same family of vegetables as broccoli, kale, watercress, horseradish and mustard, but has been shown to be 40 times more effective than its nearest rival, broccoli.
Studies have shown that eating these vegetables three times weekly may reduce pancreatic cancer risk by 30%. But the special mix of natural phytochemicals found in Wasabia japonica make it a unique super-food as it suppresses 96% of Pancreatic Cancer cells.
Wasabia japonica has been found to be toxic to multiple different cancer cells such as breast cancer, colon cancer, leukemia, melanoma and others. It has potent antibacterial powers (even killing H. pylori – which causes stomach ulcers) and is a natural anti-viral, killing the influenza virus with remarkable efficiency.
And for those wanting to lose weight or just keep off the pounds this winter, Wasabia japonica could be a big help: in rats it was shown to actually suppress weight gain as well as the accumulation of fat in the both liver and fat deposits.
Bottom line: do enjoy a diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables (including broccoli family), but you may gain further benefits by going long on the wasabi whenever you eat sushi, and consider trying wasabi covered peas or nuts as a healthy snack. Just make sure it is Wasabia japonica you are eating, and not the fake stuff – which has no good health benefits.
We have produced a list of common foods that you will find in the supermarket or sold over the Internet that claim to be Wasabi. Most are not and actually contain FDA approved carcinogens.
