Proline is a nonessential amino acid and is part of what makes up collagen. Collagen makes up just about 90% of the body’s overall connective tissue. Body parts that collagen is vital in creating and sustaining include skin, ligaments, teeth, bones and cartilage.
This product is Kosher certified.
Though Proline is synthesized by the body, the amount that is actually produced is often not enough. It is mainly found through dietary means in animal products. Vegetarians may need to supplement in order to get the correct amount.
Collagen is much like glue for cells in that it is able to help give shape and support to the liver, blood vessels, organs, bones and kidneys. It also assists in the maintenance and repair of blood vessels, bone fractures and bruises.* Proline also works in tandem with Vitamin C and Lysine to help maintain the integrity of collagen.
It is an absolute necessity to maintain all of the elements that keep collagen working strong. Proline may be reduced after exercise, which is why some energy drinks contain trace amounts of the amino acid.
This supplement should be taken in servings of 2000mg one or two times per day, or as directed by a physician.
