Prolysine is a useful supplement because it contributes to the formation of collagen, a fundamental substance for connective tissue. The lack of collagen means that the bones become fragile (with the risk of developing osteoporosis) and the joints can weaken; moreover the blood vessels would lose elasticity and the skin would have a greater tendency to aging. The integration based on amino acids such as Lysine, Proline and vitamins like C can be beneficial to support the synthesis of collagen.
Lysine is an essential polar amino acid (must be introduced with the diet), essential for maintaining our body healthy. In its hydroxylated form, thanks to the intervention of vitamin C, it is part of the composition of collagen and is also a precursor of niacin. Important is its role in the long amino acid chain of keratin (protein and main constituent of hair, hair and nails).
Proline is an important amino acid in the synthesis of collagen, because thanks to the presence of Vitamin C, it is hydroxylated and becomes hydroxyproline, a fundamental amino acid because at the base of the collagen structure, implicated in skin regeneration, of the tendinous and cartilaginous structures.
Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) is one of the most water-soluble vitamins for the body. It is responsible for maintaining the normal functionality of the immune system, and being also a powerful antioxidant, protects cells from oxidative stress and balances levels of vitamin E, equally important for human beings. Vitamin C also comes into play in energy metabolism and tissue repair, as it contributes to the normal formation of collagen, especially in the cartilage, skin and skin appendages.
