L-Proline breaks down protein to help create healthy cells. The amino acid is essential for healthy skin. It is also essential for creating healthy connective tissues. It also maintains muscle tissue. Proline and lysine (another one of the amino acids that is important to protein synthesis) are both needed to make hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, two amino acids that form collagen. Collagen helps to heal cartilage and to cushion the joints and vertebrae.
For this reason, Proline supplementation may prove beneficial for treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, persistent soft tissue strains, and chronic back pain. Decreases in Proline levels have been noted in prolonged endurance runners and others following prolonged exercise.
