I’d have to consult the FDA or a good doctor to answer that.

dot com sites are pushing products or promoting possibilities without enough background facts. I didn't find any research that wasabi work, just that a compound it contains might have some memory boosting effects. It is likely that one would have to eat a lot of it every day. As an example, turmeric has been shown to affect TNF (tumor necrosis factor), potentially decreasing a person's chance of getting some cancers. The problems are that curcumin, the active ingredient is in very small amounts in turmeric and almost none of it is absorbed by one's GI tract. So, if you ate a lot of turmeric at most meals there might be an effect. One gets around this obstacle by eating bioavailable curcumin that has been changed so that it is better absorbed.

Hello Kay,
You state: "a compound it contains might have some memory boosting effects." You are correct.
This is from a scientific study:
"6-MSITC is the main bioactive compound of wasabi. We investigated the benefits of 6-MSITC intake on cognitive health in older adults. The current RCT revealed that an intake of 0.8 mg of 6-MSITC for 12 weeks significantly improved memory functioning, including episodic and working memory, compared to the placebo group, but we did not find any significant improvements in other cognitive functions. This study is the first to demonstrate that 6-MSITC has a benefit on memory functioning in healthy older adults."

You state: "It is likely that one would have to eat a lot of it every day." I use less than 1 oz per month. It helps me and I wanted to share that with others.

That is great that it works for you (see below links). What is the percentage of 6-MSITC in wasabi? We eat a lot of wasabi and grow horseradish. Horseradish greens are good for cooking as well (stews, omelets...). I eat 2 gm/day of bioavailable curcumin because I have MGUS; don't know if it will affect my bloodwork but I'm good with being a lab rat. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37960261/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC10463496/
