  • A breakthrough foundation for healthy skin

  • Harnesses the power of the amino acid proline to work from the inside out

  • Vegetarian alternative to animal-based collagen products

The amino acid proline has been an ingredient in moisturizing skin creams and serums for many years. Now you can put proline to work for your skin from the inside with Lumistor®, an innovative form of dietary proline (as L-Hydroxyproline) developed by world-renowned amino expert Kyowa Hakko. As a precursor to the formation of collagen, Lumistor nourishes the structural foundation of healthy skin, supports moisture retention within the tissues and helps fight the visible signs of aging.

Studies conducted by Kyowa Hakko have shown that L-Hydroxyproline promotes the proliferation of epidermal cells and has a positive effect on moisture retention. Patented L-Hydroxyproline is a primary constituent of skin collagen, connective tissue and bone. It has a physiological function in stabilizing the collagen 3-D structure. Lumistor L-Hydroxyproline offers a real alternative for those who wish to avoid animal-based collagen supplements. And unlike animal-derived collagen, Lumistor is produced by a proprietary fermentation process, eliminating any risk of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) contamination.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding top quality product for joints and skin. I take one capsule each night. Works for me. November 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good As a vegetarian I was looking for a way to boost my collagen without using a cow-based product. I've only been using this for a short time (3-4 weeks I think) but I'm already seeing improvements in my skin. I take this together with vitamin C as I read somewhere that C is needed for increased effectiveness. I will be purchasing more when my supply runs out. December 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product I bought it because : Lumistor L-Hydroxyproline is a natural component of collagen and has been found by the inventors to have several health benefits. L-hydroxyproline : when combined with others , could achieve its maximum benefits as a natural. the primary amino acid in collagen is L-hydroxyproline. excellent product + excellent price , this product has the highest amount of L-Hydroxyproline of any product i could find...thank you for offering such an awesome product..thank you for your services , Swanson always has the best specials and lowest price .. Love Swanson! July 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant! - but read on so I bought this for its intended effects on skin. but I have only used it once a day for 5 days. so it def is not enough to warrant this review....BUT everytime I take one pill an hour or so before bed I have the most surreal dreams and I wake up remembering them. this was done on fri sat week before last and thu fri sat last week and each and every time a magical weird intriguing dream engulfed me. and for that alone I gave the above rating. I will update once I start taking it every day for its intended effects sweet dreams everyone! June 13, 2013
