What is Elastin hydrolysate?
Elastin hydrolysate is a purified dietary supplement made from carefully selected fish skins. Elastin is a highly elastic protein in connective tissue and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin helps to return the skin to its original position when squeezed together or pinched, for example. Elastin hydrolysate is an effective "nutricosmetic": a skin-specific food supplement.
Together with collagen, elastin is an important structural component of the skin’s extracellular matrix. This matrix is a complex cluster of collagen and non-collagen components. Optimal amounts of and sensitive interactions between these components are necessary to maintain normal physiological properties of the skin.
Differences between elastin and collagen
Elastin and collagen work together to give the skin its shape and firmness. Collagen offers firmness, while elastin gives elasticity. In other words, collagen is the structural framework of the skin and provides a powerful basis. Elastin gives the skin the flexibility to return to the form that collagen provides after changes in shape (consider facial expressions).
Although elastin is present to a lesser extent in the skin compared to collagen, it is still crucial for skin function. Elastin gives the skin softness and forms a three-dimensional network in-between the collagen fibers. Not only is the function different but also the location in the skin. Collagen is mainly found in the deeper layers of the skin and elastin especially in the skin’s middle layer.
Synergy with collagen and facial care
External skin care products are commonly used to maintain or optimize the condition of the skin. However, there is much to be gained with skin care from the inside. A balanced diet, no smoking, quality sleep and stress reduction are excellent general strategies to keep the skin healthy. The use of specific nutritional supplements can contribute to this approach. Collagen hydrolysate is an interesting product to consider, for example, but also elastin hydrolysate, or a combination for optimal synergy.
The skin as a health indicator
The link between diet and skin, or more specifically the effect of nutrition on skin aging, is not only an interesting research area for present-day scientists. People have given the subject a lot of attention over the centuries because the skin reflects the general inner state of health and aging. A youthful and energetic appearance has always been, and remains, a prominent beauty ideal. There is increasing awareness that a rational combination of inner and outer care modalities are important for maintaining a healthy skin. In today's modern world, this is more important than ever. Environmental, lifestyle and environmental factors are ever further removed from what is natural and healthy for humans.
Elastin is a specific protein derived from fish skin. Because the proteins are hydrolyzed, peptides with an average molecular weight of 1400 Dalton are produced. This makes it easily soluble and easily absorbed in the body. 48 hours after oral intake, significant amounts of elastin peptides are still observed in the skin. By taking elastin hydrolysate peptides as a dietary supplement, you not only provide the skin with the elastin building materials it needs, but also help the skin maintain more elastin over time. It is also a powerful antioxidant.
You can now easily take elastin hydrolysate peptides to replenish the body’s elastin reserves. Because elastin hydrolysate peptides selectively accumulate in the skin, the effect is skin-specific. Two capsules per day provide 600 mg of pure elastin hydrolysate peptides. Our elastin hydrolysate is extracted from fish by-products and is therefore of sustainable origin. The production process is completely natural and free from chemical solvents.
