In brief: Come again?

You'd be hard pressed to find any edible animal product that does NOT contain some kind of contractile protein.
Muscle IS contractile protein, so any non-organ meat and many organ meats also are LOADED with contractile proteins. I'm curious why you ask. Is there a new contractile-protein scare out there?

In brief: No special diet

All proteins are digested digested to amino acids when eaten, from which your body synthesizes its own contractile proteins, for muscle for example.
Regarding diet, we're talking about a well-balanced nutritious diet. There is no special diet for persons suffering Parkinson's disease. Hope that helps.
