Are you ready to unmask the secret of CoQ10? It is a remarkable compound that plays a crucial role in fueling our bodies with energy needed to thrive! So, what is it? Coenzyme Q10 (also known as CoQ10) is a powerful antioxidant that your body naturally produces, however this declines with age. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in our body and is used for cell growth and maintenance as well as converting our food into a source of energy. Antioxidants help fight damaging particles, known as free radicals, in the body which damage cell membranes and cause cell death.
Foods that are rich in CoQ10 include:
Fatty fish: Fatty fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel and sardines are rich in CoQ10. Mackerel alone provides about 6.75 milligrams per 100 grams.
Meat: As CoQ10 naturally lives throughout your body, it is present in all meat forms. Beef offers about 3.1 milligrams per 100 grams.
Organ meats: Organ meats such as kidney and liver contain high levels of CoQ10.
Soybeans: Soybean products such as tofu soy milk and soy yoghurt are a valuable source of protein. Boiled soybeans have 1.2 milligrams of CoQ10 per 100 grams.
Although it is common for our natural levels of CoQ10 to decrease over time, those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet are more likely to develop a CoQ10 deficiency as the majority of our CoQ10 intake is derived from meat products.
