WHAT IS PHOSPHORUS USED FOR?
Phosphorus is the second most abundant mineral in the body. About 85% of its total is deposited in the bones, while the remainder is deposited in the soft tissues and extracellular fluids.
It is very important for the health of bones and teeth, in fact in the form of phospholipids it is part of the cell membranes and plays an essential role in the process of transforming food into energy. It is the constituent of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), of some proteins, vitamins and is a cofactor of some B vitamins.
BENEFITS AND PROPERTIES
Phosphorus contributes to the absorption of calcium in the intestine (the ratio is 1 atom of phosphorus for every 2.5 of calcium). It strengthens the regenerative power of cells and is essential for bone formation, energy production and growth of the organism.
Phosphorus favors the use of vitamins by the body and is particularly effective in diseases of sight , hearing and smell. In addition, it performs a buffer function for maintaining the pH balance in the blood.
A lack of phosphorus can translate into bone demineralization, developmental delay and alteration, cardiac and neurological disorders, asthma and respiratory spasms, muscle atony, nervousness, stress .
It improves the memory and helps a little to calm the spirit in case of depression. In case you need to stay very focused, at work or while studying, the mineral "light bearer" (from the Greek phosphoros ) helps to focus ideas better, to clarify thoughts and concepts, and to be more determined.
WHERE IS THE PHOSPHORUS FOUND?
It is present in almost all foods and is added to the production of many processed foods. Particularly rich in it are vegetables, cereals, legumes, eggs, meat (both red and white), milk and cheeses.
The sources of phosphorus come from both the animal and plant worlds, but although the latter contains a greater quantity, the former is more bioavailable, that is, more easily absorbed by the body.
This means that, for example, in wheat bran, although it is quantitatively high, it will mostly be eliminated and will be less absorbed than the phosphorus contained in a sea bass or sea bream.
You can find it inside the Magnesium B vitality combined with Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc and Folic acid.
