Phosphorus Information

In combination with calcium, phosphorus is necessary for the formation of bones and teeth and of the nerve cells.

Phosphorus is second to calcium in abundance in the body.

It is very widely distributed in both plant and animal foods so it is unlikely that deficiency would be a problem.
