Is there anything better than a gentle smooch with your loved one? For centuries it is a way of showing affection to each other. But, kissing can do more than making you bond further and initiating sparkling physical connection. It can also lead to some major health benefits that you are not even aware of.
Fasten your seat belts and let’s ride.
Kissing And Allergies
In a study published in 2006, it was revealed that sealing lips with your partner for about 30 minutes can reduce allergy symptoms in people with atopic eczema and mild seasonal allergies. Hm,who knew?
Put You At Ease With Aches And Pains
In a research published in 2015, it was shown that oxytocin produced while kissing and cuddling might speed up recovery time for the backache you have. Since this hormone ease your pain, it gains you more pleasure by lowering anxiety and depression that many pain sufferers have.
Kissing also lowers the levels of cortisol (stress hormone), thus, you should find your medication in occasional smooching.
It Keeps Your Mouth Clean
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t brush your teeth anymore. According to some experts, sealing lips may help prevent tooth decay. As kissing stimulates saliva production which washes harmful bacteria off teeth, it automatically lowers the risk of plaque buildup upon them.
Finding A Right Partner??
A study from 2007 has elaborated that kissing may help you find your mate. When you kiss, you exchange information related to your major histocompatibility complex (MHC), which is a collection of genes associated with your immune system.
The goal is to find a mate who has a different immune system from yours, so, kissing can be a good indicator of whether or not your bloodline is too similar.
It Can Enhance Your Bedroom”Exercises”
If your sex life have stalled having so much obligations around the house, children or work – practicing kissing can make that lost sparkle shine all over again between you. Any type of physical connection from kissing to holding hands, can work wonders to heat up and spice up those bedroom stories again.
More Calories Burned
Kissing can burn calories: 2-3 calories per minute, and it might even help you lose some weight. Research claims that three passionate kisses a day (lasting at least 20 seconds each) can cause you to loose an entire extra pound.
Hmmm…good dieting ha?
Good For The Heart
A little cuddling creates an adrenaline which causes your heart to pump more blood throughout your body. Frequent kissing has scientifically been proven to stabilize cardiovascular activity, decrease blood pressure and cholesterol.
Well, as it has it’s ups – it has it’s downs as well. Why?
Deep kissing carries the same risks as light kisses and the exchange of fluids increases those risks. It allows for other sexually transmitted diseases to pass, such as:
- Herpes Simplex Virus-2
- Hepatitis B and
If you want to lower your risks, you should really know your partner well, their sexual history and their current health status.
Kissing Worse Than Shaking Hands?
In both cases you transmit bacteria. Sharing of saliva (heavy kissing), or even sharing a cup or glass with someone that is infected with mono virus – increases the chances significantly of spreading it. But mono, like many other infections, can also be transmitted by other means, such as coughing or sneezing.
So what to say…the best pleasures in life can be health hazardous as well…too much love can make you sick!
