Phosphorus

Phosphorous is involved in bone and teeth formation as well as metabolism, kideny function, cell growth and heart muscle contraction. It not only helps in conversion of food to energy (it is crucial in the production of ATP, a molecule the body uses to store energy) but also in vitmain utilisation particularly with the B-vitamins.

Cell membranes are composed largely of phospholipids. The inorganic constituents of bone are primarily a calcium phosphate salt called hydroxyapatite.

Good sources of Phosphorus are:
meat
fish
eggs
milk
