What’s The Big Deal With COQ10

Your body makes CoQ10.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that helps convert food into energy.  CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body, and it is a powerful antioxidant.  It protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules.

Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.  As we get older, and especially if we take statins to lower our cholesterol, the COQ10 level in our body gets low.  Some people take capsules.  Me, I prefer to get mine from food, I like liver and spinach.

Food sources of Coenzyme Q10

CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods.  Good sources are found in beef, soy, mackerel, sardines, spinach, peanuts, soybeans and vegetable oil.
