Co-Q10 has a multitude of benefits as it is a key compound that is stored in our mitochondria.  

Taken internally, Co-Q10 is a compound that delivers energy to the cells in your body – which is why it is often talked about as an ‘energy spark plug’ to ‘start’ your body. 

It is also considered a good supplement for heart health.

PLUS it has the advantage of being able to be taken by people already using statins. In fact, people often take Co-Q10 to offset a decline in natural levels which occurs with the use of statin (cholesterol-lowering) medication. 

Co-Q10 is also an antioxidant and plays a crucial role in protecting cells from oxidative damage.  

Foods containing Co-Q10 naturally are: 

  • Organ meats: Heart, liver and kidney. 
  • Some muscle meats: Pork, beef and chicken. 
  • Fatty fish: Trout, herring, mackerel and sardine. 
  • Vegetables: Spinach, cauliflower and broccoli. 
  • Fruit: Oranges and strawberries. 
  • Legumes: Soybeans, lentils and peanuts.
