Oxytocin As Love Drug
Can we make our own love drug? Yes, and I speak on behalf of studies by scientists focusing on a hormone produced in the brains of mammals, humans included. It’s the hormone called oxytocin, also dubbed as the “love hormone”. It goes by other names like the cuddle chemical and the hormone of love and bonding.
Whatever name it is called, it sparks a little magic. It makes humans, and pretty much all mammals, a little more humane.
