Protein metabolism

Ageing Readers,
       More and more recently there are findings of problems caused by
abnormal proteins.  I wonder if boosting protein metabolism, breakdown
to free amino acids, might help this.  Assuming that both normal and
abnormal proteins are equally readily broken down, but normal proteins
are more readily remanufactured, this would tend to reduce abnormal
proteins.  Vitamin B-2 in larger doses seems to help boost protein
metabolism and might help where abnormal proteins are suspected.
Regards, Ralph L. Samson
