Do you want to look younger and live longer without having to go under the knife? Turns out there's a way — and no, it doesn't involve any magic pills or complex regiments.
All you need is one thing: your sweetie. That’s right. According to research, the more sex we have, the healthier we get and the longer we may live!
1. It's a natural mood lifter.
Psychologically, those who have sex on a regular basis experience less depression. In the afterglow of sex, it’s usually impossible to focus on distracting thoughts and worries.
2. It's a natural stress reducer.
Some say that the best cure for stress is sex. And no wonder: The relaxation that typically follows is often one of the few times people actually allow themselves to completely relax and let go of the day’s stresses. The stress and anxiety feel-good hormone, Oxytocin, floods the brain when we have sex. This is what gives us that sleepy, relaxed feeling. Another hormone, Prolactin, kicks in [after sex] and adds to that desire to breathe deeply and fall into a peaceful slumber.
3. It's a natural immune booster.
Orgasms increase blood flow, and as fresh blood supply arrives, your cells, organs and muscles are saturated with fresh oxygen and hormones, and as the used blood is removed, you also remove waste products that cause fatigue and illness. That’s not all; immune-system-boosting antibodies like Immunoglobin are enhanced during sex.
4. It's a natural appetite suppressant.
Wouldn’t it be great to lose weight without dieting and working out? Sex can even regulate metabolism and curb your appetite thanks to the hormone phenetylamine, another natural hormone produced during sex. It serves as a natural amphetamine that eases food cravings and regulates appetite. If you have sex in the morning or before dinner, you may feel like eating less and find yourself satisfied with a smaller food portion.
5. It's a natural body toner.
Who needs the gym when you can have sex with your sweetie? The deep breathing, the muscle contractions, and the challenging positions can also strengthen your body. Muscle contraction as a form of exercise is generally good for any muscle— and not just the abs, legs and arms. The muscle contraction associated with orgasm can also address issues such as erection problems for men, and for women. Contractions during sex strengthen the entire uro-genital tract, which can aid in easing childbirth.
6. It's a natural memory booster.
Did you know that sex actually increases brain cells and improves memory? When you have more sex, your sleep quality is enhanced thus allowing time for cellular turnover and repair. Experts add that maintaining adequate levels and hormonal balance reduces the risk of dementia and stroke as well.
7. It gives you a natural facelift.
There is a biochemical basis for a look of relaxation and vibrant, glowing skin. A healthy sex life normalizes cortisol levels and other inflammatory mediators. This helps stimulate normal growth hormone levels and other sex hormones such as testosterone. It’s scientific truth that growth hormone and testosterone help repair damaged skin, erase wrinkles, stimulate collagen regeneration, and give you an overall younger and healthier appearance.
