    There are actual Kiss Scientists who study kissing. They are called Philematologists and they have discovered a wide range of benefits of kissing such as:

    1. Kissing lowers stress.

    It decreases the stress hormone cortisol and increases serotonin levels in the brain. Kissing has also been measured to lower anxiety and has similar benefits to meditation.

    2. Kissing makes us happier.

    It improves our mood by increasing endorphins, which are our feel-good hormones.

    “Happiness is like a kiss - it feels best when you give it to someone else.” ~Author Unknown

    3. Kissing keeps us healthy.

    It improves our immunity by releasing antibodies that kill bacteria. And kissing helps us prevent cavities by increasing saliva that washes our teeth. It has also been shown that our saliva secretes natural antibiotics when we kiss.

    “Never a lip is curved with pain? That can't be kissed into smile again.”? ~Brete Harte

    4. Kissing calms us down and promotes pleasure.

    It increases levels of oxytocin otherwise known as the "love hormone" which calms us. Kissing also reduces pain through our saliva which contains a kind of anesthetic and increases pleasure by releasing dopamine.

    "Your hugs and kisses are like the stars that light up my life when things get dark." – Author Unknown

    5. Kissing strengthens our relationships.

    It promotes togetherness and couples who kiss regularly live five years longer than those who don’t.

    "A kiss seals two souls for a moment in time.” ~Levende Waters

    Top 10 Reasons To Kiss List:

    Lowers blood pressure
    Decreases cortisol stress hormone
    Increases seratonin
    Reduces pain
    Increases oxytocin
    Improves immunity
    Fights off cavities
    Increases dopamine
    Improves mood
    Lowers anxiety

    There are plenty more benefits to kissing...but I am guessing that you already have your favorite reasons. What’s my favorite kissing moment, you ask? When you can feel your partner smiling as you kiss each other. Kissing makes us smile more!

    Love yourself, love your day, love your life!
