L- Proline 500mg
Solgar L-Proline 500mg. Proline is synthersized in the body from Glutamic acid. As a glucogenic amino acid, proline can be converted to a-ketoglutarate which can enter into the citric acid cycle. This means proline can be readily used as an energy source. Proline and its derivative, hydroxyproline, play an important role in the formation of collagen and elastin. In combination, proline and hydroxproline constitute over 20% of the amino acid residues in collagen. Found in connective tissue in tendons, ligaments and cartilage, collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Proline is also found in elastic, although to a lesser degree. There is some indication that proline may act as a neurotransmitter or an enhancer of synaptic transmission. 100 VCaps
