Overview

Understanding oxytocin will help you take better care of your health, and lead you toward a better understanding of how your body functions.

Benefits

Here are the benefits of Oxytocin:

  • Oxytocin reduces cravings. When scientists administered it to rodents who were addicted to cocaine, morphine, or heroin, the rats opted for less drugs, or showed fewer symptoms of withdrawal. (Kovacs, 1998) Oxytocin also reduces cravings for sweets.

  • Oxytocin calms. A single rat injected with oxytocin has a calming effect on a cage full of anxious rats.

  • Oxytocin increases sexual receptivity and counteracts impotence.

  • Oxytocin counteracts the effects of cortisol, the stress hormone. Less stress means increased immunity and faster recovery.

  • Oxytocin appears be a major reason that SSRIs ease depression, perhaps because high levels of cortisol are the chief culprits in depression and anxiety disorders. (Uvnas-Moberg, 1999)
