MEDICAL CORNER .... Oxytocin

What is Oxytocin?

Oxytocin is a powerful hormone.

When we hug or kiss a loved one, oxytocin levels drive up. It also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. In fact, the hormone plays a huge role in pair bonding.

Prairie voles, one of nature’s most monogamous species, produce oxytocin in spades. This hormone is also greatly stimulated during sex, birth, breast feeding โ€” the list goes on.

One of the “feel good” neurotransmitters!

Hug and kiss to feel good!!

We ALL are ONE!!
