Medical Xpress – A team of cognitive health and aging research specialists affiliated with a large number of institutions in Japan has found that ingesting wasabi can help improve both long- and short-term memory retention in older adults.
For their study, published in the journal Nutrients, the group gave one group of older adult volunteers daily wasabi tablets and another group a daily placebo for three months.
Wasabi is a kind of plant that grows in Japan and the Russian Far East—it has a green rhizome that some liken to horseradish. The rhizome is commonly used as both an ingredient in food and as a condiment.
It has also historically been considered to be a healthy type of spice because it is known to help reduce inflammation in various parts of the body.

TRUSTED REMEDIES TO PREVENT DEMENTIA
COGNITIVE DECLINE IS NOT INEVITABLE
“There are so few treatments for dementia, we should do whatever we can to prevent cognitive decline even in people who have no other risk factors.” – Neal Parikh, MD, vascular neurologist and assistant professor, Weill Cornell Medicine
TRUSTED REMEDIES PUBLISHING – Dementia is a broad term used to describe a group of symptoms that interferes with a person’s thinking and the ability to function well in day-to-day activities. Many conditions can result in dementia, but Alzheimer’s disease is, by far, the most common.
Dementia is defined by its symptoms, with memory loss being one of the most frequent. Just because a person has some memory loss doesn’t necessarily mean he or she has dementia. A diagnosis of dementia typically means a person is having problems with at least two brain functions.
That may include, for example, memory loss, impaired judgment or problems with language. These may in turn lead to difficulty performing routine tasks, such as paying bills or driving to a familiar location without getting lost.
Dementia also can lead to confusion. It can cause changes in personality and social behavior. Dementia may make it hard for a person to complete complex tasks that have multiple steps.
Planning and organization can be a challenge. In some cases, agitation, paranoia and hallucinations may be part of dementia. The root cause of dementia is damage to nerve cells in the brain. A wide variety of diseases and medical conditions can trigger that damage.
They include brain infections such as meningitis and encephalitis, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Lewy body dementia, multiple head injuries, thyroid problems and nutritional deficiencies, among others. Some of these conditions may be hereditary, but many are not.
