L-Norvaline is a form of the Branched Chain Amino Acid L-Valine, but aside from L-Valine's normal benefits, L-Norvaline has been shown to positively effect circulation and nitric oxide production. The difference, and reason for the the “nor” prefix only makes note that Norvaline is one hydrogen molecule longer than the original protein Valine. In the body, as with everything else in life, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is one fatal issue with nitric oxide production in the body. When nitric oxide is produced in our bodies, we are simultaneously producing enzymes to inhibit and thus restrict that production. The presence of L-Norvaline will actually inhibit your body from inhibiting your nitric oxide production, thus resulting in heightened muscle pumps and nutrient transportation during and after exercise. It has also been shown to be active during tissue regeneration as well as overall muscle growth. In studies done by the Department of Medical Physiology and Microcirculation at Texas A&M University Norvaline has been shown to increase nitric oxide production by 55%.
Where does this all fit in with N2 Slin? The claims made by N2 Slin are that it is an Advanced Nutrient Partitioner, Non Stimulant Fat Burner, and Lean Muscle Mass Gainer, and in conjunction with the other glucose regulating ingredients in N2 Slin, Norvaline's ability to increase nitric oxide and relax blood cells acts to make this process simple and more effective. It, like other nitric oxide boosters, will work to push nutrients into your muscles faster and provide enhanced muscle recovery. Interestingly enough, in a joint study done by the Department of Pharmacology at u Zagazig University in Egypt, and King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia they not only agreed that L-Norvaline boosts nitric oxide through the restriction of these enzymes but this leads to other very interesting facts as well. Norvaline treatment also helped managed and reduced reduced hyperinsulinaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia without affecting hyperuricaemia or hypercholesterolaemia. This is a big discovery not only for each of these conditions but for L-Norvaline as an overall health supplement and making it a part of preventative medicine. Additionally, one part of nutrient absorption and really increasing it and using the nutrients you ingest as anabolic agents in your muscles, you need to clear the blood of unwanted items. Most notably, hypercholesterolaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia or having excessive fat and cholesterol in your blood stream can definitely block your transportation and absorption of your post workout proteins and carbohydrates.
With the foresight to see that a product with these claims would need an ingredient like L-Norvaline to facilitate the nutrient partitioning and transporting aspect of the claims on the bottle you know that this is a very complete formula and that there is no reason to keep N2Slin out of any of your fat building programs and stacks.
