Proline was first isolated from casein in 1901, and unlike any of the other amino acids it is readily soluble in alcohol. It is a non-essential amino acid and can be synthesized from Glutamic Acid and does not require dietary sources. Proline is extremely important in the production of collagen for proper connective tissue function, such as joints, tendons and good heart muscles. Proline improves skin texture and aids collagen formation and helps contain the loss of collagen during aging. Collagen in the skin contains hydroxyProline and hydroxyLysine, which is formed from Proline and Lysine. Collagen contains about 15 % Proline.
