I am a little confused. Who would tell you not to mix you lysine and proline with vitamin C?
We learned from Sherry Lewin (Vitamin C: Its Biology and Medical Potential, 1976) that vitamin C breaks down in the gut in the presence of carbohydrates, but chelates with, and is protected by the presence of protein (amino acids.) So vitamin C combines with aminos, and this allows more to survive and enter the blood stream. We didn't know this in the beginning, but this feature of combining C with aminos may explain the spectacular success of the Pauling therapy powders.
