IN THE BODY
It is extremely easy for the body to absorb Phosphorus.
Natural forms of Phosphorus can be found in wheat germ,
dairy products, canned fish, nuts, cereal and meats.
- Women 700 mg
- Men 700 mg
- During pregnancy (14 - 18) 1250 mg (over) 700 mg
- During lactation 1250 mg
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.
Phosphorus is dependent on Magnesium and Calcium to perform properly.
Although not often used, supplements are sometimes taken to help
problems with the
bones; which include rickets, osteoporosis and osteomalacia.
If you have high blood pressure, kidney disease or heart failure, you
be taking supplements of this nature.
