Maintenance of Constant Ion Concentration in Body Fluids: Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphate, and Sulfate

  • Samuel Natelson
  • Ethan A. Natelson


Approximately 99% of the body calcium is located in the skeleton. Thus, along with phosphate, it forms the hard tissues of the body. As such, it acts as a huge reservoir for maintenance of plasma calcium levels.
