Have you ever heard someone say‘I am not a kisser’ while another say ‘ I love Kissing’. Well while you have a right to your preferences but there are things about kissing you should know then you can decide if liking or not liking it is the best decision.
- Relieve Cramps and Headaches
The blood-vessel-dilation effect described above also helps to relieve pain, particularly from headache or menstrual cramps.
- Reduce Your Blood Pressure
Kissing helps to dilate your blood vessels, which may help lower your blood pressure.
- Burn Calories
It’s not going to replace your workout session… but a vigorous kiss may burn 8-16 calories. Not too little for a kiss.
- Fight Cavities
When you kiss, saliva production increases in your mouth, and this helps to wash away plaque on your teeth that may lead to cavities. That said, cavity-causing bacteria can also be transmitted via a kiss, especially if the person you’re kissing has poor oral habits. It’s even been shown that cavity-causing bacteria can spread from a mother’s kiss to her baby.
- Release Your Happy Hormones
Kissing prompts your brain to release a happy elixir of feel-good chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. It activates the same areas in your brain linked to reward and addiction. This isn’t only important for your happiness; it also may also help to strengthen your relationship.
5. Kissing You Helps You Bond
Your lips are also densely packed with sensory neurons, which are stimulated by the touch of another’s lips. This prompts the release of sebum, which is thought to play a role in bonding.
- Boost Your Self-Esteem
One study found that men who received a passionate kiss before they left for work earned more money. This suggests the kiss (and perhaps the happy home-life it suggests) makes people happier, boosts self-esteem and, ultimately, more productive at work.
- Tones Your Facial Muscles
A vigorous kiss helps you shape up your neck and jawline by working out a number of facial muscles.
- Helps You Check Out Your Partner’s Compatibility
A kiss can be a powerful measure of your initial attraction to a person, so much so that the majority of men and women surveyed reporting that a first kiss could be a turn-off. Women, in particular, place more importance on kissing as a “mate assessment device” and as a means of “initiating, maintaining, and monitoring the current status of their relationship with a long-term partner.”
Now that you know these awesome benefits, a word of restrain, don’t go kissing any and everybody some disease can be contacted that way.
Do it with your darling hubby, whom you know very well.
