This compound is used to strengthen your bones. "When it comes to this combination of nutrients, your diet has a better chance of lacking the calcium, but you probably don't need to worry about phosphate. When you’re low on calcium, your body resorts to taking it from your bones to ensure that levels of calcium in your blood are sufficient to keep muscles and nerves working. If you need to complement your diet, you may find calcium phosphate in supplements."

If you take in too much of this compound, you can experience diarrhea, hardening of your organs and soft tissue. It can affect your body’s ability to effectively use other minerals, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. It can also cause mineral deposits to form in your muscles. It is rare to have too much of this compound in your blood. Typically, only people with kidney problems or those who have problems regulating this compound develop this problem.
