Nasal Spray to Save Your Marriage

Rumour has it that a marriage is lost if a couple argues on everything, everyday.  The good news is that Science once again has come to the rescue, this time to save your love union.


Researchers in the University of Zurich have found that couples who used a nasal spray that contained the hormone oxytocin before discussing matters of grave importance had a smooth sailing conversation. Oxytocin which is produced in the hypothalamus region of the brain gets released during labor to dilate the cervix, boost contractions and to trigger the release of milk in the breasts. The autonomic nervous system which regulates the organs gets even more active during times of argument between couples. This leads to an increase in the heart rate and blood pressure. Forty seven couples took part in the test where they chose a topic which they continually disagree upon and prayed themselves with Oxytocin. The result showed that men and women showed positive behaviour.


In a nutshell, Women were less emotionally aroused and men more aroused after using the spray.
