Phosphorus is an element which naturally occurs in rocks, soil, water and living organisms. Phosphates are essential to the growth and health of all living bodies (humans, animals and plants) and are the key elements for building structures of DNA, bones, teeth, cells and nervous system. They are useful to many biochemical processes, cellular energy cycles, photosynthesis in plant cells. In human organisms phosphates also regulate the body's acidity, help to absorb vitamins, prevent fat deposits in our arteries and also enable our muscles to contract when we move.
