Hormones and love

Do you know why you feel so euphoric when youíre in love? Why you feel happiness when youíre with your love? Do you know what happens in your body and how you can influence this all?

Well Iíll try to tell you something about this. Iíll tell you something about at least six hormones that are involved with love. You probably know them, at least the names. So letís talk about adrenaline, dopamine, fenylethylamine, endorphin and oxytocin.


Did you know that when youíre in love, dopamine gives you the same feeling as when you would use cocaine? Every time you see your love, you get a shot of dopamine and itís addictive. Everyone who has been in love knows they wanted to see the one they were in love with again and again and again.

But when youíre in a relationship for a longer period, letís say about two years; your body doesnít produce that much dopamine anymore. The feeling of being in love slowly changed in loving him or her.

When you eat healthy, youíll probably get enough vitamin B6 and magnesium.Those two together make your body produce dopamine. So make sure you get enough. And besides food, nice things like sex can lead to an extra production of dopamine.


Uhhh What? Yeah, try to pronounce this word without stumbling.
Fenylethylamine is produced in your brain. It has the same effect as XTC and speed. Your heartbeat is increasing, you start to breath faster, and the palms of your hands start to sweat, your cheeks and genitals get an extra blood flow and you start to feel happier.

When you eat a lot of cheese, eat lots of chocolate and drink plenty of red wine, maybe your brain gets some extra Fenylethylamine. (Besides the fact youíll probably get nauseous.) Most of this gets decomposed in your intestines. When you have eye contact your brain also produces Fenylethylamine.

The pupils of your eyes get bigger. But only when you see something you like. On the other hand, when you get the fright of your life, your brains starts producing this hormone too.


Who hasnít heard of it? The hormone that makes people run or fight. But when youíre in love adrenaline causes the reaction that youíre on standby all the way. Your pupils get bigger, your heart rate goes up, your breathing gets faster and youíre not so hungry because your digestive system starts to work slower.

If you want to let the adrenaline flow, get really angry, get into a situation where you get really scared, get overheated or go outside in your underwear when its ten degrees below zero outside or get some real physical exertion at the gym or maybe even at home with your loved one.

But be careful when you have a bad heart because in that case too much adrenaline can get you into trouble.


Endorphin is the morphine that your own body produces when you feel pain. When youíre in love it has the same effects as heroine and opium which cause you to feel more happy and joyful.

Eating fat, chocolate (Mmm again chocolate) and sugars make you produce more endorphin. An orgasm or running more than just around the block or far away from your in laws has the same effect.

When your body is producing less endorphin, there is a chance that you feel depressed or have mood swings.


Vasopressin works for men in the same way as ocytocine does for women. Itís said that this hormone makes people monogamous.

If you want enough of this hormone, you'd better drink no alcohol. Alcohol is a restraining factor for the production of Vasopressin. When a man ejaculates there is a large amount of this hormone made by the hypothalamus and released in the blood stream.

Vasopressin is also an antidiuretic hormone. So when you have enough of this hormone, you wonít wet your pants very easy. (If you have them on)


Oxytocinis also called the mother hormone or cuddle hormone because when a mom breastfeeds her baby, this hormone is produced in large quantities. When you hug or caress this hormone is produced too. It makes you feel connected, takes away fear and makes you feel confident. Thatís why a lot of people need foreplay before being able to make love all the way.
