It combines with calcium to create the calcium-phorsphorus balance necessary for the growth of bones and teeth and in the formation of nerve cells.

  • This mineral is also essential for the  assimilation of carbohydrates and fats.
  • It is a stimulant to the nerves and brain.

  • Phosphorous is found in abundance in cereals, pulses, nuts, egg yolk, fruit juices, milk and  legumes.
  • Usually about one gram of phosphorous is considered necessary in the daily diet.
  • A  phosphorous deficiency may bring about loss of weight, retarded growth, reduced sexual  powers and general weakness.

  • It may result in poor mineralisation of bones, deficient nerve  and brain function.
  • While taking calcium in therapeutic doses for calcium deficiency conditions or for treating  ailments, it is advisable to take the calcium supplement in which phosphorous has been  added in the correct proportions.
  • This is necessary as calcium cannot achieve its objectives  unless phosphorous is present in a proper balance.

Hi. My name’s Cathy.And I’m glad to see you here. Here’s what you really need to know about me:I am a big fan of Body and Health. I love to learn about it. I love to grow in it. And I love to help others develop as Healthy Human.. And… I’m not a fan of technology. So a Web-Site might seem like an odd fit for me. So why am I here online? Because you are. For many years I’ve been able to help People through Consultation at Clinic, Conference at public, as a trainer Fitness Centre , and as articles in books. But in this 21st Century, more and more people are searching for resources on the Internet. So it’s time for me to bring my material to the world of computers. I hope to provide you with Physical Fitness teaching that is both timeless and timely. I’ll let you in on my book writing process. I’ll tell you what I’m reading. And occasionally, I’ll tell you what I think about what’s currently happening in the world of Physical Fitness and Health Conciousness — around the world. My hope is that what you find here will add value to your life and give you the tools to achieve your goals as a Healthy Human Being.
