Phosphorus absorption and metabolism

Nearly 70 per cent of dietary phosphorus is absorbed from the intestine, although absorption depends on intake levels and life cycle changes such as growth, pregnancy and lactation. In general, more phosphorus is absorbed from plant foods than from animal foods. Vitamin D is necessary for phosphorus absorption from the gut and transfer into bone from the blood. Most phosphorus excretion is via the kidney and this is mainly regulated by parathyroid hormone.
