Kissing pigeon, the unexpected health effects of kissing

I happened to see a kissing pigeon. I knew that kissing is something only people do when they share love and good emotions, but pigeons also kiss each other. Nature is so mysterious. It is the same as a person or an animal to know how to give the feelings you like to the other. 

One of the expressions of affection of a loved one is a kiss. Physical affection, such as kissing, has a good effect on the mind and body. 


About the unexpected health effects of kissing

Kisses keep your teeth healthy and help prevent bad breath 

Kissing produces endorphins in the brain, which makes you feel better. 

Increase happiness

In particular, women are secreted oxytocin, which is well known as love hormones, and serotonin, a "happiness hormone," which warms their hearts and makes them feel better. Oxytocin is released when kissing or hugging, which also increases affection for the opposite sex. Men are extremely secreted testosterone, a male hormone. Kissing also has a stress-relieving effect. This is because physical contact such as kissing and hugging reduces the secretion of stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephyrin in the body. In particular, endorphin is a natural painkiller that is 200 times stronger than morphine and has the effect of strengthening the body and stabilizing the mind by increasing and decreasing immune antibodies in the body.

Diet effect 

Usually, a kiss burns two to three calories a minute, and a strong kiss burns up to six calories. This is equivalent to a glass of tomato juice, one-half cucumber, and three to four cherry tomatoes. This is because the heart rate increases and the facial muscles that move the lips actively move, consuming energy.

Relieve headache

Kissing is also effective in relieving headaches. This is because kissing expands blood vessels and increases blood flow. In addition, cortisol, a stress hormone that causes migraines, is also reduced and headaches are alleviated.

Strengthen immunity

Kissing also helps strengthen immunity. This is because bacteria are exchanged when kissing, strengthening the immune system. Also, the more kisses you have, the lower your risk of stroke and heart attack. According to a study by the University of Arizona in the U.S., people who kissed a lot had a lower risk of developing strokes and heart attacks.
