Mono- and polyphosphates have similar effects on calcium and phosphorus metabolism in healthy young women
European Journal of Nutrition, 07/16/2012
Karp HJ et al. – The results suggest that PP binds calcium (Ca) in the intestine more than does MP. Based on the serum phosphate (S–Pi), U–Pi and serum parathyroid hormone (S–PTH) results, both Pi salts are absorbed with equal efficiency. In the long run, increased S–PTH, caused by either an mono– (MP) or polyphosphates (PP) salt, could have negative effects on bone metabolism.
