What is L-Proline? Where is it found in the body? Do you need it? Those are all great questions. Let's talk about it.

L-Proline is an amino acid, one of the twenty naturally occurring amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. It plays several crucial roles in the body, and the structure and function of connective tissues. This includes muscles, tendons, cartilage, and collagen.

When your muscles and tissue break down, be it from overuse or even a wound, protein and collagen are the way for your body to repair and grow. While the body can synthesize L-Proline from other amino acids, if the body is under stress from injury, illness, or higher physical activity, there is a higher demand for L-Proline beyond what the body can make itself.

In conclusion, L-Proline plays a vital role in the structure and function of connective tissues throughout the body, making it important for overall health and particularly beneficial for those who are physically active or concerned with joint health and mobility.
