Wasabi for Longevity

 Wasabi For Longevity * 6-methylthio hexyl isothiocyanate (6-MSITC) is a sulfonyl compound in Wasabi that helps the body lower reactive oxygen. Reactive oxygen compromises the immune system and makes your body susceptible to many cancers. Recent studies have shown that the Isothiocyanates in Wasabi suppress cells and enzymes that promote inflammation and compromise your immune system, including Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and cytokines like interleukins and tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Inflammation and a compromised immune system in turn have been shown to make us susceptible to a whole host of lifespan shortening diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
