Women who are able to get multiple orgasms during sex have significantly higher levels of Oxytocin in their blood. Oxytocin can help make you more open to sex, and with appropriate stimulation, helps you become more easily arousal. Some female patients reported an increase in the number of multiple orgasms on Oxytocin.
The production of Oxytocin in your body is complex. Oxytocin helps you communicate with others, and discusses. Its decline after menopause is very detailed. This decrease in Oxytocin can stress your relationships and research shows that this decline may cause multiple health problems as mentioned.
Other hormones enhance the creation of Oxytocin in your body. Estrogen, thyroid hormones, and dopamine (a brain neurotransmitter that is low in people with Parkinson’s disease) decline with aging and these hormones all stimulate the synthesis of Oxytocin. The number of nerves in the brain that make Oxytocin do not decline with aging but these major stimulants of Oxytocin do decrease as you age.
Researchers have found that Oxytocin may improve Social action and repeated behavior in individuals, regardless of the age of patient. On a study was conducted on autistic patients above age of 18 were given the hormone Oxytocin for 12 weeks, and the results indicated that the frequency of their behavior was clearly reduced and they were able to recognize anger and happiness through the speaker’s voice. Autism affects the ability of brain to intake information and other problems related to how the patient deals with the surroundingsand in the acquisition of behavioral and social education skills.
Your mother produced Oxytocin when she nursed you. And also made Oxytocin when she heard you crying.
Other factors inhibit the body’s ability to make Oxytocin include stress, Opioid drugs, and even feelings of fear and anger. It was thought that Oxytocin, in the past, is important only during the birth of the child where the mother produces Oxytocin for induction of uterine contractions. In 1963, at an early medical conference on Oxytocin in South America, Oxytocin was reported to affect blood flow on a daily basis. Both high blood pressure and migraine have been associated with low levels of Oxytocin.

Oxytocin helps control testosterone production and makes testosterone more potent by converting it to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is about 4 times as potent as testosterone. The DHT then converts to another hormone that is a “male” hormone that behaves like a “female” hormone because it activates estrogen receptor,.Estrogen receptors are being studied because of when activated they have an anti-cancer properties in the breast and prostate. Hormones, like estrogen and DHT, increase the production of Oxytocin in the brain. Thus, forms of both estrogen and testosterone affect Oxytocin levels in the brain and this is one reason why a comprehensive approach to hormone replacement therapy is important.
Oxytocin has been shown to support thyroid function by improving the absorption of iodine into thyroid cells. Iodine is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. In fact, the amount of iodine in thyroid hormone determines its function. Both Oxytocin and prolactin stimulate the absorption of iodine by the sodium Iodide system.
Oxytocin may be an important factor in weight loss. Research has shown that Oxytocin affects blood sugar levels in the blood. In a 2011 study using mice, treatment with Oxytocin injections caused the mice to eat less and lose excess body fat. These mice were apparently already obese from overeating before treatment and they became less so only after 13 days treatment despite having the same food options. Their blood pressure remained the same during the treatment. The researchers concluded that “peripheral Oxytocin treatment provides a new therapeutic avenue for treating obesity and hyperphagia (over-eating).
Oxytocin is being used in the treatment of a number of health conditions as well as to support healthy aging. Oxytocin is a prescription medication that can be taken as a nasal spray, as sublingual troches. In the medical practice we have found the sublingual form the most convenient.
