Why Is The Love Hormone Good For You? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why is the love hormone good for you?” you ask? Good question. Timely too. (Besides, it beats answering the question: “Why do people name their private parts. Seriously though, that might just be tomorrow’s question.)

OK, before any of you who missed previous mention of the love hormone in earlier editions of this series, let’s review. The love hormone is actually something called oxytocin. It’s also known as the “molecule of kindness” or the “cuddle chemical”.

It’s produced by human beings when they feel love or some similar connection.  Some claim it is even produced when people hug.

So why is oxytocin or the love hormone good for you? Let’s consult an expert like David R. Hamilton, Ph.D. contributor to H.P.’s Healthy Living. He can confirm the top three reasons why it is truly beneficial. They are as follows:

  1. Oxytocin makes other folks somehow appear more attractive:

Hamilton notes that one research project proved this by dosing subjects with oxytocin and then showing them pictures of guys and gals they were told to rate on attractiveness.  The control group of test subjects was only dosed with saline.  The subjects who were not given oxytocin gave the people in the pictures lower scores than those who were given oxytocin.

  1. Oxytocin makes people more generous:

Hamilton reports that a neuroeconomics study –that is to say a study in which scientists examine the brain while folks make money-related choices – discovered that when participants were given oxytocin before making decisions about sharing their money, they were approximately “80 percent more generous than others who received a saline placebo.”

  1. Oxytocin makes people “more trusting”:

Hamilton writes that participants all played “an economics game” called the “Trust Game”. Subjects who were given a dose of the love hormone actually were discovered “to be significantly more trusting than subjects who were only given a dose of saline.” He added that of the participants “in the saline group, 21 percent” demonstrated “the maximal trust level” but almost half of the subjects in the oxytocin group displayed “the maximal trust level.”
