    Exclamation L-Norvaline

    I recently came across an article which said that many bodybuilding protein supplements have a compound called L-Norvaline and this compound is bad for the brain. Similar compounds have been linked to neurodegenerative diseases, and a study on human cells suggests L-norvaline may also cause damage to brain cells.

    Do most brands of whey protein have this compound in them? Is it safe to consume whey protein?

    Was just doing some of my own research and it increases 1 of the 3 forms of nitric oxide while reducing the other 2 one os the other two is inos which is directly linked to Alzheimer's disease. However it is from having too much inos that leads to it. So from that im lost as to how it could be neurodegenerative other than the fact it does lower blood pressure. Not enough pressure pumping blood to your brain = lack of blood/oxygen in the brain which does cause brain damage. So id just make sure you maintain safe bloodpressure. Too many conflicting studies to say yes or no on this one..
