Phosphorus

Phosphorus is needed for blood clotting, bone and tooth formation, cell growth, contraction of the heart muscle, normal heart rhythm, and kidney function.

It also helps your body use vitamins and convert food to energy.

You need the right balance of magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus at all times.

If one of these minerals is present in either excessive or insufficient amounts, it’ll have adverse effects on your body.

Deficiencies of phosphorus are rare, but can lead to symptoms like anxiety, bone pain, fatigue, irregular breathing, irritability, numbness, skin sensitivity, trembling, weakness, and weight changes.

Sources

Phosphorus deficiency is rare because it’s found in most foods.

Significant amounts of phosphorus are contained in asparagus, bran, brewer’s yeast, corn, dairy products, eggs, fish, dried fruit, garlic, legumes, nuts, sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, meats, poultry, salmon, and whole grains.

Comments

Too much phosphorus will interfere with calcium uptake.

A diet high in processed cooked foods and junk food like carbonated beverages is a common culprit.

Vitamin D increases the effectiveness of phosphorus.
