HYDROXYLYSINE is an amino acid that is present in collagen, a structural protein found in connective tissues such as skin, bones, tendons and muscles. Hydroxylysine is important for the production of a stable collagen structure. Which translates into maintaining the proper condition of connective tissues and skin. For athletes, hydroxylysine may be important because of its effects on the condition and health of connective tissues. This, in turn, affects the endurance and flexibility of muscles, tendons and joints. Quite often we will meet its addition in dietary supplements for joints. It complements collagen hydrolyzate, MSM, glucosamine or chondroitin, m.in.
