8 Amazing Kiss Benefits for Your Marriage and Your Health
Kissing in the mouth is the most common form of showing affection between couples, and anywhere in the world the habit exists, whether veiled or explicit, its history goes back to Hindu writers more than a thousand years before Christ.
Researchers at Oxford University recently did research on kissing. The study’s authors interviewed 900 people in an attempt to discover the importance of kissing in the love relationship.
The results may not come as a surprise. Instinctively, we already know what the study came to prove. Kissing is really important not only to keep the relationship flowing but also has other advantages.
According to the study, the habit of touching each other’s lips can contribute to:
1. Select a compatible partner
Many times the initial charm for someone dissipates after the first kiss. Why does it happen? According to scholars of the Oxford University Kiss (that’s what exists, it’s the filematologists), it’s because our bodies communicate imperceptibly through touch, smell and taste during the kiss, which can communicate whether the partner is biologically and chemically Acceptable or not.
2. Keep the partner
Still according to Oxford’s filematology, the kiss not only selects the compatible partner, but also keeps it close. Of the 900 interviewees, those who had a long relationship reported more kissing episodes out of sexual intercourse than those who were not in a more committed relationship.
3. Stimulate the production of oxytocin, the love hormone
The more physical interactions between couples, such as kissing and hugging, the greater the production of oxytocin, the so-called “love hormone.” It is a hormone that creates attraction between partners, a desire to remain with the person, is also the fidelity hormone, responsible for the maintainability of a fixed partner.
4. Increase physical immunity
The famous exchange of germs during the kiss benefits the health of those involved. The presence of foreign germs triggers the antibodies that go to work in search of organic invaders and fighting them, promoting health.
5. Relieve pains
During a passionate kiss, the body releases adrenaline and endorphins, hormones that reduce pain. Effective mainly for headache.
6. Release dopamine, happiness hormone
Known as one of the happiness hormones, dopamine is another substance released during the kiss. In addition, dopamine is also considered the compromising hormone.
According to scholars, this chemical is triggered when you take the first step towards a goal and also when the goal is met. For those who want to marry it seems to be the way …
7. Combat the harmful effects of cortisol, stress hormone
A good kiss is also able to combat the unwanted effects of stress. When under stress, the body releases a hormone called cortisol, which serves precisely to reduce stress, the problem is that this hormone, when in excess, causes various health ailments such as weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. So, kiss more and be leaner and healthier.
8. Live longer
The study showed that men who kiss their women before leaving for work live up to 5 years longer than those who do not. Even if it is to continue living, kiss your wife more.
As Brett Harding puts it, kissing allows us to convey feelings that words can not describe. Although there is still much to discover about kissing, it is important that it is complex, fascinating and makes us feel good. So, come on, get the pout and kiss. It’s good!
