Summary

  • Sodium and phosphate are involved in the regulation of extracellular fluid and pH
  • Iron is involved in immunity and is a structural component of haemoglobin and plays a vital role in the function of healthy blood
  • Phosphate forms part of ferritin and plays an integral role in energy production
  • In the body, iron is found most commonly associated with phosphate, the main anion for energy storage and release
  • Phosphate acts as a regulator of iron phosphate absorption, and forms part of ferritin, the iron storage complex
  • Phosphate is also incorporated into 2,3 diphosphoglycerate (2,3 DPG, a compound in red blood cells that regulates oxygen release by haemoglobin) and consequently plays an integral role in energy production
  • 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
