If I should ask you why do people kiss each other what would have been your answer? You probably won’t mention anything about health, I guess.
What if I tell you kissing is not just about pressing one’s lip against another? New studies have linked the closeness to several healthful benefits which I believe you should know.
So in this short article, I will share 5 things that happen to our body when we start kissing every day. Without much ado, let us jump to the first point;
1. It can reduce cholesterol level and high blood pressure
According to brigthside.me, people who usually indulge in the act of kissing have a greater chance of getting a healthier artery. Studies have shown that kissing facilitates the production of oxytocin, a hormone which is normally released into our bloodstream as and when we make love.
This particular hormone helps in alleviating the effects of stress and anxiety which are a greater contribution to a high level of cholesterol in our body. Also, reducing cholesterol level means lessening the risk of high blood pressure.
2. It promises a younger face
You probably have heard that keeping a smile on your face can make your face look younger every day. Well, that is true because doing that massages your facial muscles as if you are doing a workout.
But how is that related to kissing? You and I know that there is much than a smile that goes into kissing. Studies show that it involves a lot of muscle movement which helps in losing calories.
Plus, it aids in blood flow which has a pivotal role in ensuring collagen production. All these actions together help to make our face look younger and cute.
3. You might lose weight
Another reported benefit of kissing is its effect on weight loss. Studies have shown that kissing increases the production of a certain hormone which plays a vital role in curbing cravings and reducing the rate of eating unnecessarily.
One of this particular hormone is Dopamine. Dopamine is a neurohormone which boosts one’s positive feeling. Less of this hormone may spike up your desire level which may include cravings, hence gaining weight.
4. Not feeling sleepy
While dopamine promotes your positive feelings it also boosts your energy level. As a result, kissing can make one not feeling sleepy.
5. Lessen cramps or headache
Kissing overcomes a lot of bad feelings. If you are having a headache or cramps don’t hold your partner tight and give him/her a portion of your soft lips.
The benefits of kissing go beyond what is mentioned but at least that is what we have discovered.
