Phosphorus (P)

Phosphorus (P) levels in the body depend on many things, primarily, they reflect the interactions of P with calcium and vitamin D. P is one of the many important bone nutrients, and is a major component of the mineralized tissue in bones and teeth. Calcium and P assimilation into bone is regulated by vitamin D.

Phosphates are found in every cell of the body and are involved in:

  1. chemical energy transfer
  2. enzyme regulation
  3. carbohydrate metabolism
  4. amino acid assimilation
  5. lipid metabolism

P is found in:

  1. fish
  2. meats
  3. nuts and seeds
  4. beans
  5. cheese
  6. whole grains
  7. quality chocolate
  8. kelp
  9. yeast
  10. bone meal

Symptoms of P deficiency include:

  2. reproductive problems
  3. muscle weakness
