Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contains phosphorus which is vital for protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism.(1*) 

Phosphorous is needed for proper maturation of bones and for general bone development.(2*) Phosphorous is an essential element that is used to maintain cell membranes (specifically, phospholipid bilayers) and for forming ATP, the substance we use for energy at a cellular level.(3*), (4*), (5*), (6*)

The balance between calcium and phosphorous is important to consider. An excess of calcium in the diet makes it harder for the body to absorb phosphorous and people who supplement their diet with large amounts of calcium need to make sure they don't become phosphorous deficient.(7*) That said, phosphorous deficiency is considered rare.(8*), (9*), (10*)
