Are You Taking Protein Supplements For Bodybuilding? Here's What It Is Damaging

The protein supplement might be harming your body more than you know. According to a recent study people taking the protein supplement L-norvaline should be aware of its potential for harm.

L-norvaline is an ingredient widely used in bodybuilding supplements and is promoted as a compound that can boost workouts and aid recovery. According to the research, even at relatively low concentrations, the amino acid L-norvaline could make cells unhealthy and eventually kill them.
