    Phosphorus and calcium are absorbed by bones and teeth, helping them to grow and become stronger. Additionally, phosphorus keeps cells and tissue healthy by helping to generate protein from fats and carbohydrates. Phosphorus also contributes to providing energy for the body by helping to form ATP, a molecule used to store energy.
