What is Phosphorus?

Phosphorus is the second most abundant mineral in the body after calcium. Phosphorus is found mainly in the bones and teeth but is present in almost every cell in the body. This essential mineral works very closely with calcium to help build strong and healthy bones and teeth. Phosphorus also plays other important roles in the body including helping the kidneys filter waste, helping the body utilize energy and balance other nutrients in the body. This mineral is also essential for the growth and maintenance of all tissues and cells in the body.

What are good sources of Phosphorus?

Phosphorus is found in many foods including milk, grains and protein rich foods. Although deficiency in phosphors is fairly uncommon, some health conditions such as diabetes, alcoholism and Crohn’s disease can hinder the absorption of phosphorus in the body. Deficiency symptoms include loss of appetite, bone pain, stiff joints and weakness.
