Phosphorus and Sports Nutrition
Phosphorus is directly linked to exercise metabolism because it produces high energy molecules like ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and Creatine Phosphate. There are large amounts of phosphorus in your body and it works in conjunction with Calcium. That's why it's important to keep calcium and phosphorus intakes as close as possible to a 1:1 ration. An imbalance can create a potential nutrition problem. Studies have shown that phosphorus supplementation can decrease blood lactic acid levels during exercise.
