Calcium glycerophosphate - calcium salt of glycerophosphoric acid. It is used in order to reduce the symptoms of the digestive system in people who are sensitive to the intake of acidic foods and drinks. Its regular application may lead to the pathological decrease of pH of gastric juice, therefore it should be used for these reasons only occasionally.
Thanks to the abilities to buffer the acidic-alkaline reaction in the oral cavity, calcium glycerophosphate limits the development of dental plaque. It may also decrease the risk of the development of dental caries, although the issue of its activity requires further research.
Due to the content of two main ions building bone tissue in the molecule, phosphorus and calcium, supplementation with calcium glycerophosphate positively influences the state of bones. It increases its mechanical endurance and may decrease the risk of osteoporosis.
Calcium glycerophosphate is also used in pre- and post-workout supplements due to its electrolytic and osmotic activity. It positively influences cell hydration, complementing the activity of other active substances, promoting satiation of myocytes with sarcoplasm, reflected in the increase of efficiency of muscle tissue.
