phosphate loading

phosphate loading

Sports medicine Ingestion of phosphate–phosphorus to ↑ O2 delivery by ↑ production of 2,3-DPG which, in RBCs, right shifting the O2 dissociation curve, facilitating unloading of O2 in tissues, improving oxygenation and, in theory, athletic performance.

The improvement of aerobic metabolism through phosphate loading is most likely caused by the impact of phosphates in the formation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG), a compound in the red blood cells that facilitates the release of oxygen to the tissues.
This hypothesis has been supported by several research projects, whereby phosphate loading caused a decrease in heart rate during continuous endurance exercise (Farber et al.
