Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP) Powder
Dicalcium Phosphate, or as it is sometimes called, Calcium Monohydrogen Phosphate, is a type of Dibasic Calcium Phosphate that is normally found in sources such as cereals, noodles, enriched flour, chicken feed and some types of dog snacks.
This supplement can be used to make up for the dietary needs of people that are lacking in either calcium or phosphates. As always, additional research is recommended.
Serving Size & Timing
Dicalcium Phosphate should be taken in 2000mg servings either one or two times per day, depending on intended effect. Just a little over 1/2 tsp is equal to 2000mg.

INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
CONCENTRATION OF DCP
This product is pure and contains no fillers of any kind.
DCP SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving size is adhered to, it is unlikely that any adverse side effects will be experienced. Taking too much Calcium, however, can potentially result in nausea, dry mouth, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased frequency of urination and various gastrointestinal problems. If Dicalcium Phosphate is in contact with the skin for too long, this could result in red, itchy or chapped skin. This supplement should not be consumed by women who are nursing or pregnant.
The taste of Dicalcium Phosphate is best described as slightly chalky, and it is barely soluble in water. Instead, it can be effectively blended into a thicker juice or smoothie, or put into capsules.
This Di Calcium Phosphate is what I inform all of my friends and business associates to buy. This is what I use for our greyhounds. Their bones are now healthy and stronger than ever before. One teaspoon per dog, mixed with their feed everyday is all it takes.
I more than highly recommend this supplement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

I have not found any other source of phosphorus. "Pills" are unavailable.
I was using DCP from another source, but it was more expensive.*

I purchased this product to add it to my Dogs diet as he is fighting cancer. The product is of good quality, mixes well and has little taste. Overall a very positive purchasing experience.*

Phosphate is a critical mineral required to synthesize ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and this supplement should be used after a meal or creatine. I’ve found that this supplement is best used in milk since phosphate alone can draw calcium out of cells. Taken with creatine, Dicalcium Phosphate is one of the fundamentals for recovering energy levels fast whether weight training, aerobic training, or meal recovery and at a good price.*

I purchased this to make my own soylent meal-replacement shakes. It measures easily and is very high quality. Unfortunately it doesn't dissolve fully which leaves a grit in the bottom of my shakes. It's not really a problem, but definitely consider this if that annoys you.
Otherwise, shipping was fast and the product arrived in great condition!*

Most all metabolic functions require ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) to function and ATP is quickly broken down into ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) and the ADP must be resynthesized back into ADP. Called Adenosine Triphosphate because of the three phosphates that are attached and, after use, each molecule has only two phosphates (Adenosine Diphosphate). Both Glycolysis (all carbohydrate breakdown into energy) and Gluconeogenesis (breakdown of all protein, amino acids and pyruvate into energy) use many phosphates which is why this supplement should be a staple in any supplemental training line up. This product will come in especially handy when paired with creatine for weightlifters since it is needed to create phosphocreatine: the usable form of creatine involved in the phosphagen energy system. *

I mix the dicalcium phosphate powder in my dog's food as recommended by the vet. The product always arrives correct and on time!*

dicalcium phosphate is too heavy to suspend in water even for a short time with a bullet mixer, unlike many other nutrients that can be suspended long enough to drink. If you are making a smoothie/protein shake though it might work, otherwise just mix it into something like applesauce and eat it. :-)*
