Phosphate

About

Phosphates are incorporated into many compounds in the body which are vital for energy metabolism. These include ATP as an energy substrate, thiamine compounds, and 2,3-DPG, which is important for red cell function.

About 1% of your phosphate circulates in your blood and you get most of it through your food, though it is also regulated by your parathyroid glands, calcium and vitamin D levels.
