    The Love Hormone in Women


    It has been called the love hormone, the cuddle chemical and liquid trust. Oxytocin is the essence of affection, the hormone secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain that bonds parent to child, lover to lover, friend to friend, and it could soon be unleashing its powers far and wide

    Easy labour

    Best known for its role in reproduction, it’s released in large amounts after distension of the cervix and vagina during labour, facilitating birth and breastfeeding

    Big O

    It also reportedly heightens feelings of intimacy after sex. Right after your big O, you'll be practically swimming in oxytocin. Mr So-So becomes Mr Oh-So-Fabulous because the hormone stimulates a strong emotional connection to the person. So, the more you see him, the more you fall in love with him, and expect him to be doing the same. (So guys only in it for the casual fling, watch out!)

    Wonder Drug

    In addition to stimulating female and male sexual behaviour, oxytocin diminishes pain, depression, aggression and stress hormone release, lowers blood pressure, counteracts addiction and drug withdrawal, modulates appetite and digestive processes, promotes healing of wounds and… wow!… alleviates menstrual cramps too

    Liquid Trust

    Now it seems it may have a positive effect on shy people too. Scientists say tests have shown that oxytocin reduces anxiety levels in users. Some tout it as an elixir that makes you more likeable, trustworthy and attractive. Research also suggests that oxytocin may reduce symptoms of autism. Researchers are working on a spray version for the market .
