where is phosphorus involved?
Phosphorus is the second most plentiful mineral in your body. The first is calcium. Your body needs phosphorus for many functions, such as filtering waste and repairing tissue and cells. Most people get the amount of phosphorus that they need through their daily diets. In fact, it’s more common to have too much phosphorus in your body than too little. Kidney disease or eating too much phosphorus and not enough calcium can lead to an excess of phosphorous. However, certain health conditions (such as diabetes and alcoholism) or medications (such as some antacids) can cause phosphorus levels in your body to drop too low. Phosphorus levels that are too high or too low can cause medical complications, such as heart disease, joint pain, or fatigue.
phosphorus is very important in our daily heath, as every cell in your body needs phosphorus to function normally as it interacts with other minerals to help the body produce and store energy and maintains normal acid base balance. about 85% of the phosphorus in your body, is with your bones according to Linus Pauling institute. the IOM recommends that you get 580 milligrams of phosphorus per day, an task for those who eat meat and dairy products such as milk, yogurt, cheese and butter.
Phosphorus is the formation of bones and teeth.formation of ATP synthesis of DNA and RNA.
Why is phosphorus lacking poor health.
is there no deficiency with this particular minerals in the body ? considering the fact that 85% of it works in combination with calcium known as calcium - phosphates
Health and Human Development - Phosphorus
85% of available phosphorus is combined with calcium, as calcium
phosphates in the bones. Phosphorus is involved in many chemical reactions
in soft tissues, such as the metabolism of energy nutrients, maintaining
acid-base balance in the body and is part of the structure of many enzymes.
Found in dairy products, nuts, seeds, lentils, meats, bread and cereals.
