Proline is a non essential amino acid and one of the 20 proteinogenic units used in living organisms as building blocks of protein.
Proline is extremely important for the proper functioning of joints and tendons; helps maintain and strengthen heart muscles. Proline is a critical component of cartilage, and for the health of joints, tendons and ligaments.
Proline is involved in keeping heart muscle strong. Works in conjunction with Vitamin C in keeping skin and joints healthy.
Proline lacks a primary amine group (−NH2). Proline is biosynthetically derived from the amino acid L-glutamate and its direct precursor. Secondary precursor to Proline is Ornithine (minor amino acid).
