Biochemically, one-third of the collagen molecule is composed of glycine. The next largest amino acid component is formed by proline (PRO) and hydroxyproline, which together comprise approximately 23% of the collagen molecule. The best method to support wound collagen biosynthesis is to provide adequate host nutrition, assuring adequate provision of calories and protein. However, despite adequate nutrition, clinically, there is a need to enhance collagen synthesis and research has focused on… CONTINUE READING
