You may have heard of oxytocin as the love hormone. It surges in women right after giving birth, making the new mom fall head over heels in love with her little one. It also rises after an orgasm, promoting an emotional attachment to your sexual partner.
But oxytocin is more than just a love and attachment hormone. In this article, we’ll talk about three additional health benefits of oxytocin.
Use #1 – Improves Sexual Dysfunction
In a study of 30 women suffering from some degree of sexual dysfunction, oxytocin administered by a nasal spray improved their orgasm experience, sexual function, and sexual contentment.
Use #2 – Makes Social Interaction Easier
Some people have trouble with social interaction, whether because of anxiety or other conditions such as autism. It’s been shown that people with autism may naturally have lower levels of oxytocin. This often results in a fear of others, making social interaction difficult if not impossible. With oxytocin therapy, autistic patients were often better able to interact with others socially.
Use #3 – Ease Anxiety and Promote Sleep
For similar reasons as mentioned above, oxytocin can help reduce stress levels. Reducing stress can go a long way towards easing anxiety, but that’s not all. Oxytocin helps counteract the infamous stress hormone known as cortisol. This opposing effect not only eases anxiety, but also promotes calmness, tranquility, and sleep.
