Why You Need More “Vitamin O”
You know that vitamins are good for you — and you’re already familiar with the big ones…
Like vitamin C, which helps fight off colds.
…or vitamin D for your bones.
…and vitamin B for an added energy boost.
But have you ever heard of “vitamin O”?
This is one you don’t want to miss out on.
It can helps boost your immunity, lower your risk of cancer, reduces stress, and much more…
So, our “vitamin O” isn’t exactly a vitamin… but it’s just as vital for your health.
I’m talking about the Big O – orgasms.
You know they feel good — but did you know that they’re great for your health, too?
Every time you have an orgasm, it’s like getting a shot of a powerful, health-boosting vitamin.
Here are 7 key ways our “vitamin O” can boost your health.
- Boost your immunity
One study showed that people who have frequent sex have 30 percent more immunoglobulin A than those who don’t have sex as often.
Immunoglobulin A is an important part of your immune system that is considered your body’s first line of defense against infection.
- Reduce stress
One study utilizing MRIs showed that orgasms released numerous chemicals in your brain — including the stress-relieving hormone oxytocin.
Oxytocin also promotes a sense of connection and lowers the stress hormone, cortisol.
- Delay menopause
Orgasms help your body produce hormones, which could help delay the onset of menopause.
In one study, women in their 40s and 50s who had sex at least once a week were less likely to have been through menopause.
Even if you’ve already gone through the change, orgasms can help keep your vagina healthy by boosting blood flow and lubrication to that area.
- Decrease pain
If you have a headache, don’t turn down sex.
Research has shown that having sex can actually reduce the pain of migraines or cluster headaches, pain.
Pain tolerance increases when you have an orgasm—likely because of the release of endorphins, which are your body’s natural painkillers.
- Boost sleep
Another healthy brain-chemical released during an orgasm is prolactin, which is a sleep-inducing hormone.
Oxytocin can also help enhance sleep since it promotes feelings of relaxation and comfort.
- Reduced risk of cancer
Having an orgasm can specifically reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Research has shown that men who had an orgasm 21 times per month were one-third less likely to develop prostate cancer, compared to men who orgasmed less than seven times per month.
- Longer life
Numerous studies have shown that people who have more sex tend to live longer.
One study in particular showed that middle-aged men who had an orgasm at least twice a week had a 50 percent lower risk of dying from coronary heart disease, compared to men who only had one once per month.
If you’re going to live longer, you might as well enjoy it.
