Understanding Human hormones
Do you know why you feel so euphoric when you’re in love? Why do you feel happy when you’re with your Partner? Do you know what happens in your body and how it influences you all the time? Well, I’ll try to tell you something about this. I’ll Explain something about at least five Relationship hormones that are involved with love. You probably know them, at least the names. So let’s talk about adrenaline, dopamine, phenylethylamine, endorphin, and oxytocin.
When you’re in love, dopamine gives you the same feeling as when you would use cocaine? Every time you see your partner, you get a shot of dopamine which is addictive. Everyone who has been in love knows this, they wanted to see the one they were in love with again and again and again.
But when you’re in a relationship for a long period, let’s say about two years; your body doesn’t produce that much dopamine anymore. The feeling of being in love slowly changes in loving him or her. When you eat healthily, you’ll probably get enough vitamin B6 and magnesium. Those two together make your body produce dopamine. So make sure you get enough. And besides food, nice things like sex can lead to an extra production of dopamine.
Phenylethylamine is produced in your brain. It has the same effect as XTC and speed. Your heartbeat is increasing, you start to breath faster, and the palms of your hands start to sweat, your cheeks and genitals get an extra blood flow and you start to feel happier.
When you eat a lot of cheese, eat lots of chocolate, and drink plenty of red wine, maybe your brain gets some extra Fenylethylamine. (Besides the fact you’ll probably get nauseous.) Most of this gets decomposed in your intestines. When you have eye contact your brain also produces Phenylethylamine. The pupils of your eyes get bigger. But only when you see something you like. On the other hand, when you get the fright of your life, your brain starts producing this hormone too.
Endorphin is the morphine that your own body produces when you feel pain. When you’re in love it has the same effects as heroin and opium which cause you to feel more happy and Joyful.
Eating fat, chocolate (Mmm again chocolate) and sugars make you produce more endorphin. An orgasm or running more than just around the block or far away from your in-laws has the same effect.
When your body is producing less endorphin, there is a chance that you feel depressed or have mood swings.
Vasopressin works for men in the same way as oxytocin does for women. It’s said that this hormone makes people monogamous. If you want enough of this hormone, you’d better drink no alcohol. Alcohol is a restraining factor in the production of Vasopressin. When a man ejaculates there is a large amount of this hormone made by the hypothalamus and released into the bloodstream. Vasopressin is also an antidiuretic hormone. So when you have enough of this hormone, you won’t wet your pants very easily.
Oxytocin is also called the mother hormone or cuddle hormone because when a mom breastfeeds her baby, this hormone is produced in large quantities. When you hug or caress this hormone is produced too. It makes you feel connected, takes away fear, and makes you feel confident. That’s why a lot of people need foreplay before being able to make love all the way.
So, These are Hormones that make us feel whatever we feel for any person or anything. So, Just train your hormones before reading further posts of this section because It’s just going to change a lot of the ways you look at relationships.
