Phosphorus supplements

These are available in various forms including bonemeal, sodium phosphate and potassium phosphate. A recent study showed that sweet foods supplemented with phosphorus reduced the loss of minerals from dental enamel which these foods normally cause. Acute ingestion of phosphorus (phosphorus loading) may improve aerobic capacity.

Sodium phosphate is used as a laxative as it increases the amount of water in the bowel. Phosphate supplements have been used to treat bone problems including osteomalacia, osteoporosis and rickets. They are sometimes given to premature babies. Low phosphate levels caused by disease are treated with supplements by a doctor who can monitor response.
