On the delicious and passionate side of the spectrum, a smooch can be a heart-healthy micro workout, a hormone releaser and a mood booster. It’s also fun — and a great way to connect with the person you care about. Few health benefits of kissing are listed below:
Keeps Your Teeth Pearly-White:
Kissing helps to break down the oral plaque and prevents cavities by the creation of saliva, which helps to keep bacteria away. Saliva which is created while kissing washes out your mouth, and removes the cavity causing food particles, thereby preventing decay. So start kissing everyday and spark your love with your partner and get cleaner teeth.
It’s not going to replace your workout session… but a vigorous kiss may burn 8-16 calories. Not too shabby for a kiss. Not quite a jog on the treadmill, but an hours worth of smooching may burn off half a handful of M&Ms or half a glass of wine.
Kissing keeps facial muscles strong:
Sure tight abs or cellulite-free thighs may be first on the Tone Up list, but don’t underestimate the workout your mouth gets during a makeout session. Researchers say you use 30 muscles while kissing and the smooching helps keep your cheeks tight. Nice. We’ll take what we can get.
Boost Immune system:
Boosting as well as improving the immune system is one of the biological benefits of kiss. According to a recent research, kissing may protect women against Cytomegalovirus that could cause infant blindness or other birth defects during pregnancy when contracted from mouth to mouth.
Otherwise, the bug is pretty harmless in adults. And kissing has been believed for a long time to be an effective way to pass along bugs thereby strengthening the defenses of the body.
