The Love Hormone!

Updated: Feb 15, 2020

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!
