Increase the effectiveness of proline

Vitamin C is necessary for making this protein, since it acts as cofactor of enzyme prolyl hydrolase which converts proline into hydroxyproline, a component of collagen.

Vegetables rich in vitamin C (peppers, cabbage, parsley, citrus (oranges, lemons, Granada, kiwi, etc.) and other fruits (banana, mango, melon, etc.) contribute to the synthesis of collagen.

L-Lysine is another amino acid necessary for collagen synthesis. This is the limiting amino acid in cereals, so in vegetarian diets, it is very important the combination of vegetable protein.
