well, basically the article in New Scientist say that water protect the L-amino acid.
three quarter of water consist of ortho h2o, a slightly magnetic molecules and
one quarter non-magnetic para h2o.
this weak force causes the L amino acid to be slightly magnetic meaning it interact more readily with magnetic ortho h2o
therefore L amino acid is more stable
