Where in the world does coq 10 come from? Cows, pigs, chickens, corn, fish? Does it make a difference?

In brief: CoQ10/ubiquinone
Coq10 is made in the body to assist in energy production (atp) & to work as an antioxidant.
Food sources: fresh sardines & mackerel; heart & liver of beef, pork and lamb; & meats beef and pork, along with eggs. Vegetable sources include spinach, broccoli, peanuts, wheat germ and whole grains; soybean & canola oils. If using supplements, take them with meal since coq10 is fat-soluble—>.

—> Animal & plant sources work equally well. Older people may need ubiquinol, a more active form since their bodies produce less of it.

In brief: Fish grains meats
Coq10 is found in fish, whole grains, and organ meats like liver. It is also available as a supplement.
Since it is fat soluble it is best taken with a meal.
