A non-essential amino acid, L-proline is naturally synthesized in the liver from L-glutamate. It plays an important role by providing the building blocks for the maintenance and support of the structural components of the body.** It is involved in the synthesis of cartilage and collagen, and is therefore important for the proper functioning of joints and tendons.**
L-proline’s role in the production of collagen is a crucial one. Collagen is the main structural protein that makes up all the connective tissues in the human body, which includes the skin, tendons, ligaments, joints, bones, veins, and arteries.** By supporting collagen production, L-proline helps promote joint health and comfort and supports overall connective tissue wellness.**

Directions for Use
Always consult with your trusted healthcare provider prior to adding any dietary supplement to your daily regimen. There is no set daily recommended allowance for L-proline supplements, though doses typically range from 1,000 – 2,000 mg taken daily on an empty stomach. L-proline powder can be easily mixed with water, juice, or your favorite beverage for a nutritional boost.
