Product Details

What is Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP)?

Dicalcium phosphate is a mineral containing calcium and phosphorus. Calcium and phosphorus are the two most abundant minerals in the human body. Both are essential for calcifying bones. Unsurprisingly, 99% of the body’s calcium and 85% of its phosphorus exist in the skeleton. As the name implies, it is a member of the calcium phosphate family of minerals. It’s a common supplement used to fortify and enrich breakfast cereals, flour, and noodles with calcium and phosphorus.

What Does Calcium Do for The Body?

Calcium is an essential mineral for forming and maintaining strong bones and teeth. It is also an electrolyte that the body uses for muscle contraction and numerous biological processes. Electrolytes are also critical for balancing fluids, maintaining hydration, and regulating pH levels.

Calcium Deficiency Symptoms

The body leaches calcium from the bones and teeth when dietary intake doesn’t meet its needs. Some calcium deficiency symptoms include:

  • Brittle nails
  • Weakened bones that are prone to fracture
  • Muscle cramps or spasms
  • Fragile skin
  • Slow growing hair
  • Numbness, tingling, or pins and needles sensations in the hands or feet

What Does Phosphorus Do for The Body?

Phosphorus is an electrolyte and regulates numerous metabolic processes, including nerve and muscle function. Like calcium, it helps balance fluids and blood pH. It also works with calcium to support bone and tooth health.

Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP) Benefits

Dicalcium Phosphate for Bones and Teeth

Dicalcium phosphate supports healthy bones and teeth. It is a good source of calcium and phosphorus, both of which help harden and strengthen bony tissues. Dicalcium phosphate can also form hydroxyapatite, which is a significant component of tooth enamel and bone mineral. Hydroxyapatite is also a biomimetic as it bears a strong similarity to natural bones and tooth enamel. Dicalcium may further support dental health by improving the teeth’s resistance to decay and promoting remineralization. It’s also a common ingredient in toothpaste and teeth whiteners as it can polish teeth.

Dicalcium Phosphate and Digestive Health

Dicalcium phosphate may help individuals suffering from heartburn or acid indigestion. It acts as an antacid by promoting bile acid excretion. Increased bile acid excretion can also help reduce cholesterol levels, as the body uses cholesterol stored in the liver to regenerate it after excreting it. Additionally, dicalcium phosphate synergizes with probiotics and modulates the Lactobacillus paracasei (good gut bacteria) found in the gut microbiota.

Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP) Side Effects

Most individuals can take dicalcium phosphate without experiencing significant adverse effects. Direct skin contact may cause irritation. Consuming excessive amounts of dicalcium phosphate may cause nausea, stomach aches, constipation, or loss of appetite. People who are prone to developing kidney stones should not take dicalcium phosphate. is the best calcium supplement for these individuals, as it does not contribute to calcium-based kidney stone formation.
