6 Awesome Benefits of Kissing

Awesome Benefits of Kissing

Kissing not only makes us feel good, but it also has health benefits. What are the benefits of kissing? Here are six of them:


1. Improving mood

Is your mood bad? Hope your partner gives you a loving kiss-that will instantly improve your mood or mood. Kissing raises levels of oxytocin, a chemical in your brain associated with trust and bonding.
A Lafayette College experiment on couples kissing for 15 minutes showed a large increase in the chemicals.
Dean and professor of neuroscience faculty, Wendy Hill said that in another test where a group just holding hands also showed a change in oxytocin (like kissing), but fewer in number.
"So if you want to get a better mood, maybe we suggest the last one," he said.


2. Boost immunity

It may sound unexplained and contradictory, but uniting your saliva with a partner can prevent you from getting sick. The study, conducted in 2014 and published in the journal Microbiome, says couples who often make love actually share a saliva microbiota that forces your body to make antibodies against foreign bacteria.

And just in case you're curious, on average 80 million bacteria are transferred in 10 seconds kissing.


3. Identify your dream partner

A kiss can tell you more about the type of couple you are dreaming about. Dr Helen Fischer explains at Chemistry.com that in a study of 58 men and 122 women, 59 percent of men and 66 percent of women said they got a lover after the first kiss.
"With this little action, you can get a great lesson on who will be your partner," writes Fisher. "First you can see, smell, taste, hear and feel a better partner. After that the message that arises from your feelings will get to the brain ".
The message provides information about the health of your spouse, what they eat, drink and the smoking habits and state of mind-from feelings of fear to tranquility.


4. Burn calories

If a small kiss moves some muscles, then a passionate hug can use up to 34 facial muscles and burn 26 calories per minute.


5. Releasing stress

When the work weighs your mind and other problems makes it harder, your stress level will rise drastically. That's when you need a romantic kiss.
Kissing is known to reduce stress hormones, cortisol. On the other hand, based on The Neurobiology of Love 2005, stress may encourage us to kiss more often to strengthen our relationship.


6. Relieves fever

For people with high fever, a kiss may be an option to ease it. A Japanese study published in Physiology and Behavior in 2003 showed that when patients suffering from atopic dermatitis or allergic rhinitis perform a 30-minute session of kiss, symptoms of their disease, including itching and plasma neurotropic levels subside.
