Men & Women- Oxytocin
Oxytocin can be prescribed for men and women to enhance sexual experience, bonding, and orgasms.
For women, Oxytocin can help treat female orgasmic disorder, female arousal disorder or for those women who just desire a more powerful orgasm or multiple orgasms. For men, the release of Oxytocin is stimulated by sex, which appears to intensify erection, orgasms, and ejaculation.
This powerful “bonding” hormone acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain influencing behaviors such as empathy, generosity, and orgasm. Oxytocin levels increase naturally with physical contact and interaction including eye contact, hugging, kissing, and massage.
Oxytocin comes in troches and nasal spray.
What is Oxytocin and how can it help you?
Intimacy is one of the most important components of a relationship for most couples. For those wanting to enhance their sexual experience, Verve Health can offer men and women a hormone supplement. Oxytocin, often proclaimed as the “love” or “cuddle” hormone is produced and stored in the brain. It is known primarily for its effects during and after childbirth, where it causes the uterus to contract during and after labor and promotes the flow of breastmilk. This hormone is also responsible for the bond between mom and baby.
Most recently, Oxytocin has been studied for its effects on adult social interaction and the sexual arousal process. Oxytocin reduces anxiety and creates a sense of calm and contentment when in the presence of an intimate partner. Oxytocin is released in response to a variety of environmental stimuli including skin-to-skin contact and cervical stimulation experienced during sex. It promotes a bond of intimacy, closeness, and desire which increases sexual receptiveness. Studies show that during sexual arousal and immediately after orgasm in both men and women, plasma Oxytocin levels are elevated. The flood of oxytocin levels in the brain during orgasm explains couples’ interest in cuddling immediately after. Oxytocin is prescribed to treat Female Orgasmic Disorder, Female Arousal Disorder or just for those women who desire more powerful and multiple orgasms. For men, the release of Oxytocin is stimulated by sex, which appears to intensify erection, orgasms, and ejaculation.
Aside from its effects in sexual health, Oxytocin is known to help mediate pain through its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as help in the healing of wounds. Oxytocin’s properties also aid in metabolism, as well serve as a potent antidepressant.
Oxytocin can be taken as a troche or nasal spray.
Troches: Dissolve 1 troche between the gum and cheek daily 30-60 minutes prior to sexual activity. Avoid eating/drinking until troche has completely dissolved.
Nasal spray: One spray in each nostril 15-30 minutes prior to desired time. This route is effective for those desiring enhanced sexual or social interaction.
