The O hormone... Oxytocin, Dr. Grace Liu taking all about the happy hormone!
Oxytocin is the chemical in our hearts, brains and guts which is associated with cementing human and animal bonding, connections and learning. It is a multifacted hormone, like all neuropeptide hormones. In studies, Oxytocin protects against heart disease, diabetes, gut inflammation, cancer and fungal/microbial infections. It has been shown to also heal wounds. Without oxytocin, studies show mastery of performance and learning are hindered and halted. I will discuss how our gut microbiome symbionts make Oxytocin. I will review the latest research on how your performance, learning and gut health can be biohacked with pro-Oxytocin strategies. #happyhormone #ohormone
