Product Overview

4 oz - 45 Day Supply
L-Proline is an essential amino acid and precursor, along with vitamin C, for collagen. Collagen is a building block of tendons, ligaments, arteries, veins and muscles (heart muscle). It is important in the healing of wounds, the building of cartilage, and important in supporting flexible joints and muscles. The amino acid may also help in reduces sagging, wrinkling, and aging of skin due to sun exposure.

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.
Serious athletes that subject their body to routine, rigorous workouts may want to take a supplement containing Proline in order to avoid loosing muscle massthe body begins to cannibalize its muscle for energy when glucose supplies run low.
Suggested Use: 1 to 2 level teaspoons daily, mixed with water or juice.
