Phosphorus is a mineral that is considered to be an ‘essential nutrient’, because your body needs it in order to function properly.

This important mineral is used by the body to keep your muscles and bones strong.

Good plant-based sources of phosphorus include:

  • Oats
  • Hemp seds
  • Chia seeds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Almonds
  • Brazil nuts
  • Cashew nuts
  • Pistachio nuts

It is uncommon that a person will experience a phosphorus deficiency, regardless of the diet that they follow.
