Benefits of Wasabi

Studies have shown that it is a natural sanitizer with the ability to fight E. coli, staph, and various strains of bacteria, yeast, and mold. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help the joints and muscles as well as numerous antioxidants that help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. It's also a natural detoxifier that helps the liver function and boosts digestion.
Benefits of Ginger
Ginger is one of the healthiest spices on the planet. It aids in digestion, can help prevent stomach ulcers, and has been known to greatly reduce nausea and vomiting. Ginger increases circulation, reduces inflammation as well as exercise-induced pain. Ginger is also useful in fighting infections by inhibiting the growth of several types of bacteria including rhinovirus, which can cause the common cold. It has also been found to enhance brain function.
