It is said that CoQ10 can aid in aging, heart disease, blood pressure,
Age-related macular degeneration Early study shows that acetyl-L-carnitine, n-3 fatty acids, and Coenzyme Q10 (Phototrop®;) may help age-related macular degeneration. More research is needed using Coenzyme Q10 alone before a recommendation can be made.
Since CoQ10 is essential to the optimal function of all celltypes,it is not surprising to find a seemingly diverse number of disease states which respond favorably to CoQ10 supplementation. All metabolically active tissues are highly sensitive to a deficiency of CoQ10. CoQ10's function as a free radical scavenger only adds to the protean manifestations of CoQ10 deficiency. 
Rather than take the pill CoQ10, and worry that you could be putting excess coQ10 in your body,it would be safer to eat the foods that contain CoQ10.
This is not for me, but Fish contain the highest source of CoQ10. Regularly including the freshest servings of sardines and mackerel in your meals allows the body to turn this important enzyme into the energy (ATP) that powers the heart and other muscles in the body to work efficiently. Also Beef heart and Liver.
Fresh lamb and Pork are also sources of CoQ10.
Eggs, but not chicken.
Vegetables and Grains
  • Preparing fresh raw vegetables as part of a diet is another valuable source of the CoQ10. In particular, spinach in a fresh salad with broccoli added to the mix and sprinkled with wheat germ is a coenzyme Q10 lunch. Fresh peanuts and unprocessed whole grains give the body smaller amounts of the CoQ10.
