Summary

  • Sodium and phosphate are involved in the regulation of extracellular fluid and pH
  • Calcium and phosphate are essential during childhood and other periods of rapid growth and development and are incorporated into bones and teeth
  • Calcium plays a key role in mitotic division, the process in which cells divide and the growth process occurs and is needed in increased quantities during times of rapid growth or cell turnover, including childhood and adolescence
  • Phosphate is an essential element in all human cells and, like calcium, is necessary for normal growth and development and required in increased amounts during times of growth
  • Calcium phosphate is taken up by the skeleton, and is an essential nutrient for the growth and development of bone and teeth
  • The phosphate buffer system is one of the body’s important mechanisms for maintaining intracellular acid-base balance in which sodium monohydrogen phosphate and sodium dihydrogen phosphate act as efficient buffers in acid and alkaline conditions respectively
