Mitochondrial Health

Did you know this awesome fact about our mitochondria? 💜

One fascinating fact about mitochondria is that they have their own DNA. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is distinct from the DNA found in the nucleus of the cell. This unique feature suggests that mitochondria have an evolutionary origin separate from the rest of the cell and are believed to have originated from a symbiotic relationship between ancient prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells. This phenomenon is known as the endosymbiotic theory and provides valuable insights into the evolution of complex organisms. #mitochondria #functionalmedicinedoctor #doctorsoftiktok #learnontiktok #fyp
