Publisher's Summary

At first, they thought it wasn’t real, but science has discovered the truth. 

Sometimes people call oxytocin the “cuddly” hormone, and rightfully so, because this hormone stimulates closeness, creates happiness, affects attachments patterns, and creates a chemical, biological connection between partners, friends, and family members.

What else can we learn about oxytocin? Why do we need oxytocin as human beings? How can we increase oxytocin releases in our brain? 

Although these are the most important issues that will be tackled in this short guide, other subtopics related to it will be addressed as well. These include but are not limited to:

  • How exactly oxytocin functions in male and female brains
  • What you can achieve with meditation and how it boosts oxytocin levels if done the right way
  • How oxytocin counters stress
  • The main differences between oxytocin and codependency 
  • The best ways to grow your relationship by boosting your testosterone and oxytocin levels

When you understand the significance and the best triggers of oxytocin releases, you can have more fulfilled, happier life.

Add this book to your cart. You and perhaps your partner, too, will benefit from it.

This is it

I saw this book go live and I got it because I love learning more about hormones, neurotransmitters, etc. This book touches on the reason why oxytocin brings people together, why women in particular bond with their children and partners through this hormone, and how to increase or reduce this hormone in your daily life. I thought it was helpful information, so I highly recommend it.

For Sleep

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. A bit like meditating. Monotone male voice reading multiple articles in a row?

Oxytocin

This book reveals some of the most important underlying causes of our feeling connected or disconnected to each other. It's a truly magnificent book and I wish there was more like this out there. I'll be sure to check out Quinn Spencer's other books, though. Recommended.

Repetition doesn't help my oxytocin levels.

A few ideas/research findings repeated which was irritating and disappointing. Shame as such an interesting topic.

good but short

a great first read but want to know more. it was a bit repetitive but in a good way if studying for college. I listened to this while sewing so I can multitask, i think I need to listen to it again to fully understand though.

Very lovely

This guide shows what happens in our brains when we connect to others, when we make love, or when we feel close to our loved ones. It's a chemical that shouldn't be ignored.
