PHOSPHORUS


THE BREAKDOWN
  • Strengthens bones
  • Produces energy
  • Breaks down protein, carbohydrates and fats
  • Healthy DNA


IN THE BODY
It is extremely easy for the body to absorb Phosphorus.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Phosphorus can be found in wheat germ, dairy products, canned fish, nuts, cereal and meats.


DAILY DOSE
  • Women 700 mg
  • Men 700 mg
  • During pregnancy (14 - 18) 1250 mg (over) 700 mg
  • During lactation 1250 mg


OVER DOSAGE
Too much intake of Phosphorus can produce a deficiency in the Calcium levels of the body. Because it works so closely with Calcium and Magnesium, if one of those minerals is lacking, the proper amount of Phosphorus may not be received by the body.


AGENTS
Phosphorus is dependent on Magnesium and Calcium to perform properly.


SUPPLEMENTS
Although not often used, supplements are sometimes taken to help problems with the bones; which include rickets, osteoporosis and osteomalacia.


WARNINGS
If you have high blood pressure, kidney disease or heart failure, you SHOULD NOT be taking supplements of this nature.
