The main functions of elastin

Elastin is a very important protein with the ability to expand and contract again. Its role is therefore to ensure the elasticity of the entire joint. It is found in the skin, but also in tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, lungs and intestines.

As we age, elastin diminishes, making it increasingly difficult for our bodies to maintain the elasticity they had in childhood and youth. According to experts, about 1% of elastin is lost every year from the age of 25, with the downward trend accelerated by frequent UV exposure, stress, unbalanced hormone levels and smoking. Wrinkles and thinning, papery skin are already visible signs of elastin deficiency.

However, elastin can be replenished with special products. Very effective is the regular use of Elastin N-Medical, which contains well absorbed because hydrolyzed elastin.
