Kiss, it is normally used to show affection, but actually has a lot of health benefits. Here are 5 scientifically proven benefits of the “french” kiss.
1. Kissing Relaxes
Scientist has found that kissing increases the levels of oxytocin, a natural chemical in the body that acts as sedative. In addition to this, kissing also releases endorphins. Endorphins are a natural hormone that increases happiness and relieves from pain. When a kiss is exchanged, saliva releases dopamine, which improves the mood.
2. Kiss Boosts the Immune System
A recent study in “Medical Hypotheses” revealed that while kissing, there is an exchange of antibodies. Antibodies help to strengthen the immune system by defending the body against bacteria. Each exchange increases the body’s resistance. However, please be careful with the kissing with someone who is sick, the exchange of saliva will hinder the health benefits of the kissing!
3. Kissing Rejuvenates the Skin
According to Dr. Ava Cadell, kissing is like getting a facelift. When we kiss, we use 32 different facial muscles. Just like the body, when we stop exercising it droops and sags. The face responds in the same way. Kissing is a workout for your face. Older couples, which practice kissing more often, look younger than their peers which don’t.
4. Kissing reduces allergy symptoms
Kissing reduces the emissions of IGE antibodies in the blood, which are responsible for allergy symptoms.
5. Kissing reduces the risk of heart disease
Studies show that long-time married couples, who are kissing often, have lower levels of stress, cholesterol and blood pressure. When these levels are reduced, it the risk of heart disease is minimal.
