Whether or not supplementation is right for you will depend on your specific health condition. As far as dietary intake is concerned, if you eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in vegetables, proteins and healthy fats, you’re probably getting enough. But just to make sure you’re covered, here is a useful guide for picking foods that will help make sure you’re taking in high amounts of coQ10 compounds.

 

1. Fatty fish

The benefits of omega-3-rich natural fat found in fish are becoming more and more well known. But these types of fish contain plenty of coQ10 compounds as well, and since they are fat-soluble, these fish provide an ideal source for absorbing them. Generally, fatty cold-water fish like herring and tuna are a good choice. Generally speaking, the leaner the fish, the less coQ10 compounds it will contain.

 

2. Nuts and seeds

These also make a fantastic source. Pistachios are a popular snack and a good source of these beneficial molecules. Interestingly, one of the best sources is a “nut” which health articles often dismiss: The peanut! While other nuts are much healthier in many ways, peanuts are a great choice if you want to boost your coQ10 levels.

3. Meat

Meat is a good option too, particularly red meat, like beef. A small three-ounce serving of beef contains about 2.6 milligrams of coQ10. Chicken is also a plentiful source, but it usually offers about half as much as the same amount of beef would.

CoQ10 is a complex topic, but it seems to be worthy of discovery for your body!
