Health Benefits of Kissing

The Kiss

Whose life has not been changed by a kiss?” Do you remember; that inevitable first kiss –the sweetest stolen kiss – the good-bye kiss?  We preserve the moment and when recalling it years later, the memory takes us back to that day.  Besides pleasure, there is something else kissing does for you.  It’s actually healthy.  Below are a few health benefits of kissing. See if you’ve been exercising your right to kiss.

Healthy Heart:

Kissing is said to reduce stress and anxiety by releasing oxytocin, the ‘love hormone’ responsible for bonding. It can reduce stress levels by activating the body’s relaxation response. It also increases your heart rate and improves blood circulation. 

Boosted Immunity:  It is also said that kissing can reduce allergic reactions.

Improved Dental Health:  Increasing saliva flow to wash away plaque.

Calorie Burning: Kissing can burn from 8 to 25 calories per minute depending on how passionate it is. 

Facial Toning:  Uses many facial muscles and prolonged kissing can tone them resulting in firmer, younger looking skin.

Headache Relief:  A cure for the excuse; (Not tonight honey, I have a headache). 

Each kiss provokes another. In those early days of love think of how often you kissed. When was the last time you kissed someone?  

Arousal:  There is one more kind of kiss to consider. It invokes  arousal. The technical term for it is “Mouth to mouth Microbia”. AKA: The French Kiss. Depending on the amount of saliva the kisser has when it begins, the microbes that end up in your mouth have to stick there, otherwise they’re swallowed. That could be a good thing because being swallowed would mean certain death when they fall into your gastric juices in the stomach. The average French kiss usually takes about an hour… to dissolve the microbes. 

Kissing can be soft and reassuring as it nourishes and warms the soul.  Surprise your beloved sometime today with a kiss that invokes one of the above healthy habits. French or English, it doesn’t matter as long as you put your heart and soul in it. Besides, it’s good for your health.
