For example, sardines are one of the most Ubiquinol rich foods, but you would need to eat 33 pounds of sardines to get 100 mg of Ubqiuinol. That's 120 cans of sardines at a cost of $240 every day.  Please also note that naturally occurring Ubiquinol in foods like chicken convert back to CoQ10 when they are cook which is more difficult for your body to utilize.
