4 servings Prep time: 30 min Cook time: 15 min

This savory meal is sure to leave you feeling satisfied thanks to high-protein cod and plenty of fiber-rich vegetables. 

In addition to protein, cod is also a rich source of vitamin B12, which supports healthy blood and neurological function and positively impacts DNA methylation, which regulates gene expression.

Bok choy, garlic, ginger, broccoli, mushrooms, and spinach offer a huge variety of micro- and phytonutrients to fight free radicals, promote detoxification pathways, and reduce inflammatory processes—a leading driver of chronic disease.

Healthspan is the number of years we live highly functioning and feeling great, without chronic or debilitating disease. Sadly, right now the average gap between lifespan and healthspan is 10 years—that means most people are living the last decade of their life in a downward spiral of poor health. Supplements can be an effective way to combat the symptoms of declining function we’ve come to call aging, but you’ve got to focus on quality.
