Nutrient - Phosphorous

By Nutri People

Roughly 80-90% of Phosphorous is found in teeth and bone. Phosphorous works with many B vitamins and with calcium, magnesium and vitamin D for strong, healthy bones. It makes up part of DNA and RNA. It is involved in using fat, protein and carbohydrate; combining with fat to make phospholipids; transporting fat round the body; making, storing and releasing energy; contracting muscles, transmitting nerve impulses, secreting hormones, balancing pH and making protein. Plenty is obtained from the diet so it is not usually supplemented.
