Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which occurs in beef and fish, helps to maintain proper immune function and neurological health. Many studies have cited favorable results in patients who take Coenzyme Q10 after only one month of treatment. Here are some ways to get enough CoQ10.
What is Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), otherwise known as vitamin Q and ubiquinone, is a fat-soluble compound produced by your body for generating cellular energy in the mitochondria.

- Three months of treatment with CoQ10 resulted in a 55.3% improvement in neurological health conditions.

Which foods have the most coenzyme Q10?
The richest food sources of CoQ10 have only a few grams per serving, and much of that is lost during cooking over high heat, such as frying.
Here are some foods that are high in CoQ10, according to the Linus Pauling Institute:
- Fried beef, one 3-ounce serving- 2.6 mg
- Pickled herring, one 3-ounce serving- 2.3 mg
- Fried chicken, one 3-ounce serving- 1.4 mg
- Soybean oil, 1 tablespoon- 1.3 mg
- Canola oil, 1 tablespoon- 1.0 mg
- Steamed rainbow trout, one 3-ounce serving- 0.9 mg
- Roasted peanuts, 1 ounce- 0.8 mg
- Roasted sesame seeds, 1 ounce- 0.7 mg
Other sources of CoQ10 include broccoli, pistachios, cauliflower, oranges, strawberries, and eggs.
How much fried beef can one person eat?
If you don’t suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia, or hypertension, then you get enough nutrients from food sources- enough to avoid deficiency.
But what if you need extra doses of CoQ10? How many ounces of beef, fish, or beans would you have to eat, assuming that soybeans and peanuts are not migraine triggers?
- 57.7 servings of fried beef, or about 11 lbs.
- 65.2 servings of marinated herring, or about 12 lbs.
- 20 lbs. of fried chicken
- 150 tablespoons of canola oil
- 11.7 lbs. of roasted peanuts
Wouldn’t be easier to take CoQ10 supplements?
Look for quality ingredients, including a mixture of the following potent vitamins, minerals, and herbs:
- Coenzyme Q10
- Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
- Butterbur, PA-free
