It turns out that an active sex life contributes to no less active brain activity. This is assured by a neurologist Ernst Peppel of Munich. The scientist is convinced that sex life is an elementary need of a healthy person, and therefore it is very important for the normal functioning of the brain.
When a person gets an orgasm, then in his right hemisphere of the brain there is an activation of some parts. Such an outbreak of brain activity, in turn, has a positive effect on both physical health and mental state.
Citing the arguments of his own theory, the scientist relies on already known facts. Firstly, in the process of sexual contact there is an acceleration of heartbeat and increase blood pressure. Therefore, this load makes it possible to maintain their own shape in good shape. In the process of recent studies, scientists even managed to prove that immediately after orgasm, the number of cells that can protect the body from the effects of pathogenic elements doubles.
Secondly, regular sexual contacts contribute to the activation of neurons of the brain, which accelerate the production of the hormone testosterone. This hormone has the same effect on the body of both men and women as antidepressants. In addition, the higher the content of testosterone in the male body, the more it is protected from development prostate cancer and manifestations of a depressed state. At the same time, in women, the hormone is actively produced after sex in the body oxytocinwhich is able to protect against development breast cancer.
True, it is important that sex be passionate and desirable for both partners. German sexologists are confident that regular sexual contact is a kind of prevention only if there is mutual feelings and attraction between partners. And in order for the level of testosterone and oxytocin to remain at the proper level, it is enough to engage in passionate sex twice a week.
