What Is Oxytocin?
Oxytocin, often referred to as the “love hormone” or the “cuddle hormone”, had been proven in studies to play a large role in promoting enduring friendships, marriages and relationships. Collective data has shown oxytocin to reduce anxiety levels in users, in turn helping to facilitate social contact between people.
Oxytocin is naturally released in the brain in response to hugs, kisses and other forms of caress or touching. Oxytocin’s role in sexual response is primarily to facilitate attraction and touch sensation, secondarily increasing further upon touch and spiking at the point of orgasm. An orgasm can typically produce a spike in oxytocin more than two times the normal level, leading to the calm, satisfied postcoital afterglow and desire for cuddling and higher level bonding.
Oxytocin and Age
As one ages, he or she may notice a decrease in many physical and emotional feelings. These emotions may include passion, love, and sexual drive. This is often related to a decline in our naturally occurring hormones. We mostly hear about hormones such as testosterone in men and estrogen and progesterone in women.
Why to Supplement with Oxytocin?
Supplementing with Oxytocin for both men and women can benefit not only your love life, but your health as well. Oxytocin is also known to lower blood pressure and cortisol levels. When one has high levels of cortisol, it can negatively affect all of the sex hormones. Stress is a hugely related to raising cortisol levels. Oxytocin has been associated with lowering anxiety.
