Proline is the amino acid necessary for the production of collagen and cartilage for healthy joints, ligaments and skin.
L-Proline for Cardiovascular Health: L-lysine and particularly L-proline are important substrates for the biosynthesis of matrix protein
and competitively inhibit the binding of lipoprotein to the vascular matrix which prevents cholesterol build up and resulting arterial plaque. Maintaining the integrity and physiological function of the vascular wall is the key therapeutic target in controlling cardiovascular disease.
L-Proline for fine lines and wrinkles: When proline is taken, the stability of collagen is increased, making it a desirable supplement for skin integrity and decreasing fine lines and wrinkle.
L-Proline to heal wounds:Proline initiates the biochemical pathway for connective tissue repair and collagen production, therefore increases wound healing and minimizes scar formation.
Reducing cholesterol plaque (sresearch from Linus Pauling)
Vit C: 3 gm, Lys: 2 gm, Proline 2 gm
As above, but increasing by 50% more
Skin and wound healing: 2 – 5 gm daily, weight dependent
The intake of L-proline may lead to the development of neurological problems such as seizures and intellectual disability in patients with hyperprolinemia, a rare genetic condition caused by the excesses in proline levels, according to the Genetics Home Reference of the National Institutes of Health.
If you have high levels of lactic acid in your blood, you are also predisposed to hyperprolinemia, because lactic acid inhibits the breakdown of proline
People who have chronic kidney failure should not take any amino acid supplement without consultation with their physician Smokers should avoid proline supplements and foods that are high in proline if they eat foods preserved with nitrates or that release nitrates during the process of pickling,
because, in smokers, nitrates can convert proline into the potent carcinogen Nnitrosoproline.
People who have alcohol-related liver disease should not take proline, as they usually already have high levels of proline in the bloodstream. Chronic liver inflammation interferes with the body’s ability to make collagen anywhere except in the liver, where proline is used to form the collagen that forms the fibers that cause cirrhosis of the liver. People who have allergies should avoid proline as it increases levels of histamine in the bloodstream.
