Kissing aside from being a social pleasure has plenty of benefits especially to overall health and relationships. First, a kiss can help reduce blood pressure. It dilates blood vessels which result in low blood pressure. Aside from that, it provides relief from cramps and headaches.
Kissing also fights cavities because of saliva production during a kiss. It also helps release your happy hormones such as serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. These hormones are important to your health and strengthen your relationship with other people. Do you know that kissing helps burn calories too? A vigorous kiss can help you burn up to 8-16 calories. Kissing can also boost your self-esteem. A study shows that men who received a kiss before going to work earned more money.
