Oxytocin and Weight Loss: A new study reveals indicators for possible breakthrough

An exciting new animal study has found that the hormone oxytocin could be a potential breakthrough weight loss treatment

Weight loss is one of the most challenging issues for many people. There are so many suggested weight loss formulas and diets, that it is not surprising people become confused over the subject.

New findings

Oxytocin, a reproductive hormone, has been found to regulate food intake and energy metabolism, according to the study, which was presented at the Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting on June 24, 2012, in Houston. The study’s leaders presented how oxytocin helps initiate uterus contractions in women, and stimulates the milk-producing glands during childbirth. Previous research by the same medical team had also found a link between oxytocin and the body’s control over energy intake and use.

Research on Oxytocin as Autism Treatment

The 1988 movie “Rain Man” was the first to address the topic of autism in a ‘popular’ context. That it had two such stars as its front men did more than most scientific papers to bring a perception of the disorder into the public forum.

But how prevalent is autism? Is it the same for both sexes? Is it really treatable?

Oxytocin: The Key to Fidelity

The famous poet, Oscar Wilde, once said: “Those who are faithless know the pleasures of love; it is the faithful who know love’s tragedies.” Perhaps Oscar was referring to the emotional torment felt by those on the receiving end of infidelity. Or perhaps he was referring to the temptation all too often experienced by men – and women – to cheat on a partner. Either way, infidelity is without a doubt the most difficult problem any couple can face, for both the faithful and the faithless partner. Surely if there was a drug that could cure people from the temptations of infidelity, it would be flying off the pharmacy shelves? Well, it appears there might be.

“Social distance” is what can prevent people from cheating. It is the unwritten physical distance that people keep between them when they communicate. Communication within this distance is the point at which people start to feel uncomfortable. One set of circumstances that really tests the boundaries of social distance is when two people flirt. When these people give in to temptation, that social distance is broken down.

It was initially thought that oxytocin, a substance that encourages social relationships, would be able to break down that distance. Researchers at the University of Bonn recently decided to put this theory to the test. Oxytocin has long been nick-named the “love hormone”, so researchers at the institute thought that the substance would diminish any desire to maintain social distance.

Oxytocin AND Generosity

April 9, 2012 Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

One of the most puzzling conundrums about the human race is that we, unlike many other animal species, can be moved to acts of generosity towards others, often complete strangers and more often than not at a cost to ourselves. There are many examples – helping someone with a difficult problem and diverting our energy and attention away from our own task describes it more prosaically.  You see someone fall and the immediate reaction is to rush to his or her aid – why? Well the exact reasons seem to be shrouded in the mystery that is the human psyche but a recent paper  (2007) by some Californian academics is that a little known (to the public at large that is) hormone called oxytocin may be at the root of it.

Oxytocin and Introverts/Extroverts

February 18, 2012 Oxytocin And Anxiety, Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

The issue of social problems, and not having good social skills, is often related to not being comfortable in social surroundings. For people who are perfectly comfortable in social surroundings, there is no need to worry and things flow naturally and smoothly, friendships are made, parties are remembered, and life goes on.

There are people that want the same things but find it difficult to be comfortable and act naturally in the same social situations. Even if someone wants to be in these types of surroundings, exposed to new people, interesting situations and the like, their nerves change their behavior and make them exactly the sort of person they would not want to meet! The irony is not lost on many people who face this problem, and while the problems are not always acute or problematic enough to be diagnosed as a bonafide mental disorder, the negative social effects can still be large.
