The Love Hormone Solution: How Boosting Your Oxytocin Levels Decreases Stress for Women
My secret to de-stressing quickly when I feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and not sure what to do is to boost my LOVE hormones!
Oxytocin is a special hormone that men and women make in our bodies when we feel pleasure and connection.
For example: when snuggling, hugging, cuddling, kissing, and making love we get a rush of sensual energy and a high of oxytocin that makes us feel safe, relaxed, and blissful.
This is because oxytocin is a direct antagonist to cortisol, our main stress hormone.
When we increase oxytocin, it causes our cortisol levels to decrease as a result.
While all sexes make oxytocin, women are able to create peak amounts of this hormone in our life, such as through breastfeeding, birth, and orgasms.
The more pleasure you experience in life, whether through enjoying a delicious meal, taking a soothing bath, or experiencing sexual activity, the greater your oxytocin levels, and the more calm one feels and carries forth into their life.
Plus, women who have higher oxytocin levels experience stronger, longer, and multiple orgasms easier. Who doesn't want more of that?
Oxytocin is enhanced by estrogen, the female sex hormone, and so effects women stronger.
We also have a higher need for oxytocin than men, due to the effects of stress impacting our bodies, hormones, reproductive cycles, immune systems, and fatigue more.
When we are deprived of oxytocin, we get cranky from the lack of love hormones and the rise of stress hormones!
