Surprising Health Benefits of Kissing
It is very true that kissing is good for you. It is one of the most delightful things that can ever happen to humankind. While the heavenly act of kissing makes you feel so good, there are remarkable health benefits to it, both physical and mental.
Improves your state of mind: A lip-lock improves your mood by increasing endorphins, which are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress. In fact, they are the feel-good hormones. Secondly, the brain releases dopamine which is responsible for feelings of desire and attachment. Thirdly another hormone called serotonin, which also is a happy chemical is released to lift your mood up. With all these chemicals getting released throughout your body, the kiss keeps your sensation and feelings high, with which you can bid goodbye to unhappiness and gloominess. It feels great when you kiss your loved one. Keep kissing to stay happy.
Strengthens your bond: With a fast-paced world today, it is very important for both the partners to spend quality time with each other. Kissing promotes relationships and togetherness. Kissing is not just kissing. It is a very thoughtful act of both of you, bringing out who you are, what you can give and what you want. Couples who think through and carry out this on a regular basis have a longer life and the bondage between them continues ever after making them inseparable.
Boosts your sex drive: Kissing sessions made for longer periods release testosterone into the saliva. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for sex drive both in men and women. In particular, the male saliva contains a good amount of this sex hormone, which directly affects the libido. Both men and women have this in their bodies. In general, men initiate the kiss and they like sloppy kisses with open mouth. Unknowingly by doing this, they transfer the testosterone to prompt the sex drive in women.
Makes your face look young: The workout your mouth gets during a Kiss is stupefying. A kiss with tongue uses almost all the muscles of your face and approximately 25 calories are burnt per minute during the act. Research says, close to 30 muscles are used while kissing and this muscle workout, combined with facial flushing with prolonged kissing sessions make your facial muscles to be in good condition, re-energized and helps keep your cheeks tight. The face shows your age the most. So to stay young, keep kissing.
Leads to fewer cavities: Kissing bids adieu to cavities. The act of kissing increases the flow of saliva. The saliva secretes natural antibiotics that clean, wash your teeth and kill the bacteria that promote tooth decay. Just by regular kissing, you can stay away from bacteria that can cause cavities, decay and plaque build-up. More kissing is equal to fewer cavities, provided both the partners have good oral hygiene. Just do a snuffle test for their breath, and if they pass, go ahead and kiss. A kiss will always bring a happy grin on your face. Go, Say cheese!
