Phosphorus

Phosphorus is an essential component of all plant and animal tissues. In the form of phospholipids, it is a component of most biological membranes. Phosphorus is also important for the structure of nucleic acids, and it plays an important role in the storage and transmission of energy as well as the activation of many enzymes.

Phosphorus contributes to energy-yielding metabolism, normal function of cell membranes, maintenance of normal bones and teeth condition. When you eat 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink, your daily intake of phosphorus is 1.5 grams (1).

One from the often mentioned question is a right proportion of phosphorus and calcium intake. If we eat well, we don't have to be nothing worried about. For adults, the average intake of phosphorus is 1415,85 mg per day and average intake of calcium is 928 mg per day. According to body relation of phosphorus and calcium was established recommended daily intake of phosphorus. This relation is approximately between 1:1,4 - 1:1,9 (P : Ca).

The recommended daily intake of phosphorus is 550 mg and recommended daily intake of calcium is 850 mg.

Here are mentioned the examples of individual and often eaten foodstuffs with approximate contain of phosphorus ( The phosphorus contain does not have to be always natural.) 100g of emmental / white bread / almonds / or lens is contain more than 450 mg of this element. For comparison, Mana has natural and the lower amount of phosphorus. In 100g of Mana you will receive 349 of phosphorus.

Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption / utilization of calcium and phosphorus. It also contributes to retain a normal condition of our bones. In one serving of Mana is contained 1,3 µg of vitamin D in the form of ergocalciferol (2,3,4).

Enjoy Mana as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Mana is suitable for every healthy adult.
