Oxytocin and Weight loss

IAS News 13 July 2012 | 7 Comments

Oxytocin is a hormone that is commonly known to help with the initiation of the uterus and breast milk producing glands during childbirth and nursing. However recent studies have also shown its usage may also lie in food intake and energy metabolism. The findings by Yuko Maejima PHD, have shown the possibilities of creating an effective and safe treatment of obesity using this hormone. This in turn will help with diabetes, heart and blood-vessel diseases, and cancer. Obesity has more than doubled since the 1980’s and is likely to continue doing so, meaning at the present time more than 1.4billion adults are overweight.

The results of the study have shown that daily injections of Oxytocin reduced the amount of food consumed and decreased their body weight during the trial and for 9 days after treatment had finished.

Results from oxytocin being administered by mini pumps showed reduced liver fat, improved glucose tolerance and decreased adominal fat – all decreasing the risks of cardiovascular disease.

Other purposes for Oxytocin which are perhaps more widely known are what makes it more commonly known as the cuddle drug. The hormone can help enhance relationships between partners, children, friends and even pets! The bonding side of the hormone kicks in immediately after childbirth creating that everlasting bond between mother and baby. Meaning that it helps both before birth by aiding with the contractions, and after with that maternal feeling.

It can also help with sleep patterns and have a calming effect, possibly due to its ability to counteract stress and the effects of the stress hormone cortisol. As there are so many diseases out there that are enhanced by stress, anything that can help reduce this is very useful.

We supply Oxytocin in sublingual troches which dissolve under the tongue, avoiding any potential complications with it in the digestive system.

    Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you offer.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.

    Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your
    RSS feeds to my Google account.

  5. I recently had a patient report that after starting oxytocin sublinguals she no longer has the emotional need to eat as she did before. Oxytocin deficiency is, I think, a very under-diagnosed condition. Forget putting statins in the water, let’s put oxytocin in there. Imagine it!
