Because a lack of phosphorous can cause muscular atonia, we recommend eating a number of foods regularly, both as a cure and a preventive measure. Note that these foods are even more important if you are taking antacids or barbiturates, both of which lower phosphate levels in the blood. Other potential causes of a phosphate deficiency include:

– alcoholism

– pregnancy

– a lack of Vitamin D

Symptoms of a deficiency include:

– general physical fatigue;

– nervousness;

– muscular atonia;

– respiratory problems

Recommended foods

– chocolate

– cheese

– egg yolk

– dried legumes and oleaginous fruit

– fish, seafood, mollusks

– meat

Avoid alcohol as much as possible
