Boost Your Love Hormone!

Boost Your Love Hormone!

  • Oxytocin’s reputation as the “love hormone” is well earned.
  • Simply being attracted to someone can lead to the production of oxytocin. But physical affection, including kissing, cuddling , or having sex, also contributes to increased oxytocin production.
  • Just spending time with someone you care about can also help boost oxytocin production. This can help increase closeness and positive relationship feelings, making you feel happy, blissful, or even euphoric.
  • If you really want to feel those happy hormones, note that dancing & sex lead to endorphin release, while orgasm triggers dopamine release.
