Health News: Oxytocin, Stress and Cancer

August 23, 2011 Oxytocin In The News, Research Articles Comments Off

Trust. Bond. Love. Cuddle. Calm. Connected.

These are the terms we associate with oxytocin, the hormone produced within our bodies during sex or lactation. It’s true that oxytocin does some spectacular neuro-work on our feelings and emotions, but oxytocin is also a super-hero in the way it helps our bodies combat stress.  Researchers in Italy and Australia are now studying oxytocin’s potential in the fight against cancer. … Continue Reading

Oxytocin Takes the Sting Away, Studies Say

If you want to measure a person’s generosity level, see what they do when asked to give away some of their money. Researchers who decided this was a good way to measure oxytocin’s effect on generosity found that the hormone – known to promote trust – made study participants more likely to share, possibly by reinforcing their trust that their own portions would suffice.

Oxytocin Peaks at Orgasm and Also Peaks Perception of Pleasure in Sex, Studies Say

Good sex includes (at least) three parts: the buildup, the peak and the afterglow, and oxytocin is one of the few neuropeptides that is part of all, bringing home pleasure before, during and after.

In fact, oxytocin plays a highly prominent part in sex, a role that has been researched since at least the 1980s when a benchmark study showed blood plasma levels rose in both genders during arousal and were markedly higher during climax than prior baseline levels.

Oxytocin Can Stave Off the Pangs of Addiction

July 29, 2011 Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

Keeping former drug abusers clean for the long haul is notoriously difficult, but scientists believe novel therapies developed from oxytocin may offer hope to addicts trying to kick the habit.

Researchers began studying oxytocin’s effects on drug cravings during the 1990s, and a 1999 issue of the journal Progress in Brain Research noted that the hormone reduces withdrawal symptoms and lowers tolerance to various addictive drugs, including opiates, cocaine and alcohol.

Oxytocin May Be Able to Help Smokers “Kick Butts”

July 24, 2011 Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

By Maureen Salamon

Oxytocin and nicotine have much in common. Both calm anxiety. Both light up the brain’s “reward center” – a network of cells linked to pleasure. But oxytocin is clearly the healthier of the two chemicals, and researchers think it may have the power to help smokers “kick butts.”

Oxytocin’s reputation as the “love hormone” is actually the reason why support groups benefit people with addictions, scientists say. Those with bad habits to kick reinforce feelings of safety and trust among peers when they meet to talk about their struggles, a process that triggers the release of oxytocin in the brain.

Oxytocin’s Effect on Sleepiness Likely Tied to Mixing with other Chemicals, Researchers Say

By Maureen Salamon

It’s well-known that sex can make people sleepy. So can melatonin, a hormone available in pill form that helps regulate sleep-wake cycles. But where does oxytocin fit into this? Scientists are still figuring that out, though oxytocin seems to combine with other chemicals and situations to bring on the zzzz’s more quickly.

Oxytocin (Part 2/5)

June 16, 2011 Featured, Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

Oxytocin is found only in mammals. When it is high, one experiences a sense of relaxation, rest, and growth, repair and healing, loving behavior and emotional-attachment. Love and nurturing early in our lives are necessary for optimum health, and healthy brain development cannot take place without it. It isn’t just that low oxytocin levels are an indicator of early neglect and lack of touching, it also indicates a dysfunction of the entire system, and serves as a prognosticator of our later mental and physical health. Its presence says, “I was loved and could develop normally,” its lack says, “I was unloved and my system is skewed.” That is what I mean by “marker.”
