Summary

  • Sodium and phosphate are involved in the regulation of extracellular fluid and pH
  • Sulfate ions are involved in detoxification, especially the conjugation of toxins
  • Sodium plays a key role in fluid balance and is required for bile 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
  • Sulfur compounds are involved in phase II detoxification (conjugation), where they render metabolites more water-soluble, thereby inactivating them and facilitating their excretion in the bile, faeces or urine
  • Sodium is required for bile production, and is incorporated into the conjugation products of several bile salts
  • Sulfate is a structural component of many glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins and as such, is a stabiliser of connective tissue contributing to its strength, elasticity and hydration
  • Sulfated glycosaminoglycan production is important in injury and wound repair
