How sex makes us smarter, happier and younger
Sex is not only enjoyable but also very useful. Making love helps to shake the whole body: eyes light up, skin shines, sleep is normalized, heart activity improves. According to a study by a group of scientists from the University of Maryland, regular sex not only promotes the formation of new cells, but also improves mental performance, in other words, you will think faster and better.
Scientists from Rutgers University found that approximately 30 areas are activated in a woman's brain during orgasm. Sudoku, crossword puzzles, and other mind games involve less brain areas.
In addition, sex improves mood as the brain releases many hormones in the process. During orgasm, serotonin and dopamine are produced, which are responsible for happiness and pleasure.
In addition, you will receive a portion of oxytocin - the "love hormone" due to which we feel great tenderness and affection for our loved ones.
Such a hormonal surge promotes overall relaxation, improves mood, and normalizes sleep.
According to a 2010 study, sex increases the number of cells in the hippocampus, the area of the brain responsible for long-term memory.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone directly related to the aging process. To get it naturally, you just need to make love. DHEA improves brain function, stimulates the formation of new brain cells, and, as a bonus, has a beneficial effect on the immune system and skin condition.
