Phosphorus


It is found in legumes, milk and dairy products, nuts, liver, eggs, chicken, meat, fish and cereals.

Phosphorus deficiency causes loss of appetite, irregular breathing, fatigue, pyorrhea  (suppuration), nervousness and pain in the bones.

Phosphorus is essential (together with calcium) for the formation of bones and teeth. It is necessary for the production, storage and release of energy.


Excessive intake of magnesium, iron and sugar reduce the absorption of phosphorus.

On the other hand, proteins, iron manganese, calcium, and vitamins A, F, D increase its absorption.
