Health Benefits of Kissing
Reduce Your Blood Pressure
Kissing helps to dilate your blood vessels, which may help lower your blood pressure.
Relieve Cramps and Headaches
The blood-vessel-dilation effect described above also helps to relieve pain, particularly from headache or menstrual cramps.
When you kiss, saliva production increases in your mouth, and this helps to wash away plaque on your teeth that may lead to cavities.
Release Your Happy Hormones
Kissing prompts your brain to release a happy elixir of feel-good chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. This isn’t only important for your happiness, it also may also help to strengthen your relationship
