A tight embrace for a few seconds boosts the secretion of dopamine and serotonin that we call the hormones of happiness because they are changing the mood of the better.
2. Prevents stress
When you touch someone, your brain sends signals of adrenal glands to rest and paralysis, which directly causes cortisol production to decrease, making you feel less anxious and worried.
3. Reduces blood pressure
Powerful grip also stimulates the secretion of oxytocin. During this biological process there is a significant drop in blood pressure in the body, which has a positive effect on the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.
4. Improves humankind
The combination of oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin is a powerful cocktail hormone that strengthens the immune system and builds resistance to infections. Some experts say that the embrace is equally effective as a multivitamin tablet.
5. Reduces pain
Oxytocin is a natural analgesic that reduces pain in any part of the body. That's why you feel good while you are pulling along with your partner.
6. Emotionally connects
The most obvious reason to share a hug is emotional connection with a partner, children, or friends. Embrace is a powerful emotional bond that will make you feel loved and protected.
