Phosphorus

Phosphorus is a macro-mineral that provides for numerous biochemical processes. In actuality, calcium is the only other mineral that is found in greater amounts in our bodies. It is estimated that this mineral defines nearly 1 percent of our overall body mass. [1] The majority of phosphorus supplements are classified as inorganic phosphate salts and include:


  • Dibasic potassium phosphate
  • Dibasic sodium phosphate
  • Monobasic sodium phosphate
  • Pentavalent phosphate
  • Tribasic phosphate

Of these inorganic phosphates, pentavalent phosphate is the most readily available form for use in our bodies, playing vital roles in bone structure and mineralization. Calcium and phosphorus work in conjunction to compose and harden (strengthen) our many tooth and bone structures. [2] The majority of phosphorus, some 85 percent, is found in tooth and bone structures. The remaining concentrations are located in the bloodstream (10%), and various cell and tissue structures (5%); the structure of cell-membranes are created by a particular form of phosphorus called phospholipids.


Phosphorus is also extremely important in the production of DNA and RNA, which constitutes our individual genetic coding. Other processes of this mineral include; proper growth, formation, maintenance, and repair of all cells and tissues.
