If you find yourself constantly stuffed up and suffering through sinusitis, popping even a small amount of wasabi into your mouth can do the trick. Like most other radish-based foods, the powerful compounds in wasabi cause a strong reaction in the nasal passages, accompanied by the nostrils flaring, a runny nose and watery eyes. This can help to loosen the mucus and phlegm and reduce sinus congestion, allowing you to breathe normally and get your sense of smell back. The most enjoyable way to add wasabi to your diet, of course, is by using it on sushi.
