The Love Hormone!

Updated: Feb 15

In honor of Valentine's day, let's chat about the love hormone!


Oxytocin is the love hormone and it is responsible for many actions in the body! It plays a role in social bonding, social recognition, sexual health, orgasm, labor and delivery, and more!



This hormone is produced in the brain and serves as a neurotransmitter. It can be increased by something as simple as a hug. It can promote heart health, reduce stress, improve your sleep and support your immune system!


Do something for someone you love today and for you as well- share a hug!


Happy Valentine's day!
