Chomp on some chicken for an extra shot of CoQ10, a coenzyme that is needed to help facilitate 95 percent of the human body’s energy. It’s also needed for healthy organs, being most crucial to organs with the highest energy requirements, including your heart, liver, and kidney.
“CoQ10 plays a vital role in the process of cellular energy creation,” Goldstein says.
As your age, your body produces less amounts of CoQ10, so it’s important to incorporate it in your daily diet. A 3 oz serving of chicken has 1.4 milligrams, which will help move you towards your daily goal of at least 30 milligrams.
One cup of raw spinach is loaded with magnesium, a mineral necessary for our bodies in the energy process, Goldstein notes. Popeye was right about this green vegetable, but instead of canned spinach try organic.
