Good news to all of us. Phosphorus is found in almost every food, thus deficiency is rare.

This essential nutrient is required for proper cell functioning, regulation of calcium, strong bones and teeth, and for making ATP (adenosine triphosphate) a molecule which provides energy to our cells. All of it and more calls for many elements to interact in our body, including phosphorus.

When deficiency in phosphorus occurs, it leads to loss of appetite, anemia, muscle pain, improper bone formation (rickets), numbness and a weakend immune system.

Too much phosphorus in the blood stream is not good either. What the body does is sending calcium – out of your bones – to neutralize the access of it. Calcium is excreted from bones, thus weakening them. This process can cause calcification of internal organs, increasing risk of heart attach and other vascular diseases.

Phosphorus is found in many foods, but the easiest way to absorb it from is meat. From plant sources, our bodies absorb only about 50% of the available phosphorus in them.

Here are some foods rich in phosphorus for your consumption!

Pumpkin seeds & other seeds: Sunflower, Squash
Cheese, Romano
Fish: Salmon, Carp, Mackerel
Shellfish, scallops
Nuts: Almonds, Pine nuts, Pistachios, Cashews, Brazil nuts
Pork, lean sirloin
Beef and veal, lean variety
Non-fat yogurt
Soy foods
Beans and Lentils

    Phosphorus + Calcium Go Hand-In-Hand Together

    Source webMD

    Calcium alone can’t build strong bones and tissues. New research shows calcium needs phosphorus to maximize its bone-strengthening benefits, and taking a lot of calcium supplements without enough phosphorus could be a waste of money.

    Researchers say it’s the first time the two elements have been shown to be co-dependent for bone health. Both calcium and phosphorus are found naturally in dairy products, but most calcium supplements and calcium-fortified foods and beverages don’t contain phosphorus.

    More than half of all bone is made from phosphate, and small amounts are also used in the body to maintain tissues and fluids.

    But the study, presented at a meeting of osteoporosis experts, found that taking large amounts of calcium from supplements can interfere with phosphorus absorption.

    Women trying to prevent or treat osteoporosis typically take 1,000-1,500 mg of calcium a day in the form of supplements. Researchers found this amount of calcium can bind up to 500 mg of phosphorus — making it unavailable to the body.

    “Although this would present no serious problem for many people, it could impact women over 60 years of age who have diets that contain less than the National Academy of Sciences recommended daily allowance of 700 mg of phosphorus,” says study author Robert P. Heaney, MD, of Creighton University, in a news release.

    “For these women, the usual calcium supplement, calcium carbonate, may block most of the absorption of phosphorus. If this happens, the calcium won’t do much good because bone material consists of both calcium and phosphorus,” says Heaney.

    Researchers say their study shows both calcium and phosphorus are needed to support any increase in bone mass, and a calcium supplement that contains phosphorus would be preferable to one that provides calcium alone.

      So are there any calcium supplements out there that also contain phosphorus? Maybe a multivitamin?

        Phosphorus is present in many foods and can be easily obtained by eating from the variety of foods. Just glance over in the post again.
        Here’s what I found on health line:

        “In most cases, calcium phosphate offers no advantage over calcium carbonate or calcium citrate,” says Dr. Roger Phipps, assistant professor at Husson University School of Pharmacy. “However, adequate phosphate is needed for bone health. So calcium phosphate may be a more appropriate supplement in someone with phosphate deficiency.”

        Phosphate deficiency is rare. “Most people who need calcium supplements need it because of vitamin D deficiency,” Phipps says. In fact, excess phosphorous linked to cola or soda consumption is a growing health concern because it’s associated with osteoporosis and problems with kidney function.”

    Phosphorus & Digestion

    Phosphorus plays an important role in facilitating effective digestion in the human body. It does this by stimulating the digestion of riboflavin and niacin in an efficient way. These two vitamins are also essential for human health, so any way that their uptake can be maximized is a good thing.

    These two varieties of vitamin B are responsible for everything from energy metabolism to neurological and emotional response systems. Beyond the uptake of other vitamins and minerals, phosphorous directly clears up indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, and generally tones up the digestive system for regular, healthy bowel movements.

    This increases the health of the digestive system, as well as that of the kidneys, since the toxins are being eliminated from the body, rather than recycling through the kidneys and stressing that system.

    Phosphorus & Protein Formation

    Phosphorus is one of the most important element in the creation of proteins, which further help in the process of reproduction.

    It also facilitates the maximum utilization of proteins in the human body to ensure proper growth of cells, along with their repair when necessary.

    Phosphorus also helps our bodies utilize carbohydrates as well as fats. The metabolism of proteins is what keeps our body growing and maintaining itself as the wear and tear of the years continues. It is one of the most essential parts of human metabolism, so phosphorus’ stimulating effect is vital to our overall health.

    Phosphorus & Hormonal Balance

    The health benefits of phosphorus may be considered vital for regulating the balance of hormones in the human body. It ensures that hormones, especially those required for good reproductive health, are always present in appropriate, balanced amounts.

    Phosphorus does this by directly interacting with the endocrine glands of the body and helps to regulate the creation and release of hormones. The hundreds of hormones in our body play extremely important roles in all of our health issues, and phosphorus is an irreplaceable part of that control system.

    Phosphorus & Cognitive Function

    Since phosphorous is an essential element found around as well as inside the cells of the brain, it is obviously responsible for important functions.

    Proper levels of phosphorous guarantee proper brain function and cognitive growth and development.

    Studies have linked a phosphorus deficiency to an increased risk of cognitive malfunction, and the early onset of neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

    Phosphorus & Metabolism

    Phosphorus aids in the process of energy extraction by stimulating the process of metabolism of different nutrients. Furthermore, it helps in the flow of energy and its efficient usage by different organ systems, some of which is due to its ability to absorb vitamins so efficiently.

    Phosphorus acts as a participant or co-factor in a number of chemical reactions taking place inside the body. Also, it facilitates the proper utilization of various nutrients entering the body. All in all, be sure to always include phosphorus in your diet, you won’t get far without it!

    Phosphorus & Excretion

    Phosphorus plays an important role in keeping the kidneys healthy. It does this by ensuring the proper release of waste from kidneys through the process of urination and excretion.

    By increasing the quantity and frequency of urination, the body is able to balance its levels of uric acid, excess salts, water, and even fat, since urine is usually about 4% fat.

    Phosphorous encourages the healthy balance of all fluids and materials that are eliminated from the body, thereby helping the entire body remain healthy and toxin-free.

    What cuts of beef are considered lean so I can look for those on the rare occasions we buy beef!
