If you’re one of the unfortunate ones who find kissing irritating and as a result of that have and are continuing to live a life bereft of passionate, long kisses and exchanges of saliva, then these 6 surprising benefits of kissing may help you out.

Benefits of kissing

1. Kissing helps us determine if someone is a good match

A kiss can be a powerful measure of your initial attraction to a person.

According to biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, we are drawn to people with particular biological profiles.

And exchanging saliva cocktails is one way to figure out for sure if someone is actually a good fit, or not. She said.

2. It is good for your brain

When you kiss someone your heart beats faster and more oxygen reaches your brain.

3. It lowers your stress hormone

Over time, kissing lowers your levels of stress hormone cortisol, which helps create a sense of security in you.

4. Kissing is good for your teeth

When you kiss a special someone, saliva production increases in your mouth, and this helps to wash away plaque on your teeth that may lead to cavities.

5. It strengthens relationships

Kissing triggers your brain to release chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin.

oxytocin is involved in developing feelings of attachment. While dopamin is involved in developing feelings of happiness, While serotonin is linked to calm, caution cooperation, and loyalty.

All this happy elixir of feel-good chemicals combined helps to strengthen your relationship.
