Improved immune system:
Orgasm causes an increase in the levels of adrenaline and other immune cells within the bloodstream. This helps the body to fight infections.
Better Heart health:
When you orgasm, your heart rate increases and your lungs breathe fast to fulfil the demand of your heart. This can reduce the risk of developing heart diseases. During orgasm, your body releases a steroid that is known to reduce the risk of heart attack.
Better night sleep:
Next time you’re thinking about taking a sleeping pill, you may want to try having a mind-blowing orgasm instead. Some researchers and therapists have theorized that when orgasm occurs, there is release of neurochemicals, like endorphins which can have a sedative effect.
Orgasms can lower anxiety by raising endorphins and other hormones that boost mood. One of such hormones is oxytocin also known as the ‘love’ or ‘cuddle’ hormone which helps the body to feel relaxed.
Chronic stress can crash the immune system and put the body at risk of different illnesses. The feel-good hormones orgasm releases are a perfect way to dial down the stress and put your body in a good state.
There is some evidence that orgasms can relieve all kinds of pain including menstrual cramps and headaches. This is attributed to oxytocin and endorphins. These are chemicals released in the body during orgasm.
Orgasms could keep you looking young:
One study by Dr. David Weeks at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital discovered that those between the ages of 40-50 who reported having sex 50% more than other respondents looked younger. Dr. Weeks says this could be because intercourse releases Human Growth Hormone, which makes skin look more elastic. There are even some studies that suggest that regular orgasms and sexual activity can help people live longer.
