But there is more to kissing than just affection or lust. Did you know that kissing not only helps to improve your bond with your partner but it also provides a range of health benefits?

Keeps Your Teeth Pearly-White


Kissing is one of the natural ways of cleaning your teeth; wondering how? Dr. Stephen D’souza – Dental Practitioner says – 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. 

 

Boosts Immunity


A recent study reported in the journal Medical Hypotheses says that kissing may increase a woman's immunity from Cytomegalovirus. Cytomegalovirus, contracted through mouth to mouth contact, can cause infant blindness and other birth defects if the mother is a carrier during pregnancy. This virus is only harmful, if the woman is pregnant, otherwise it is totally harmless. 

 

Calorie Buster


Kissing at least for a minute will help you to lose approximately 2-3 calories. To burn some calories, it is important that your kissing should be intense. Kissing also helps to double your metabolic rate. Thus, if you want to lose some calories without much hard work, then go on a kissing diet.

 

Boosts Cardiovascular Health


Adrenaline - the chemical or the hormone which is released from your body when you kiss your partner helps to promote heart health. This hormone makes your heart pump more blood around your body. This further helps to lower blood pressure and improves blood circulation in the body. So start kissing to maintain the health of your heart.

 

Stress Reliever


Had a bad day? Just kiss your partner and your head will be filled with all the positive feelings post-kissing. Kissing is a very good stress-reliever, as it helps to lower down the level of cortisol in your body and helps you to relax. A passionate kiss will make you smile and forget all the sorrows of your life. Instead of popping antidepressant pills, start kissing your partners to be happy

 

Tones Your Facial Muscles


A passionate kiss involves movement of 34 facial muscles and up to 112 postural muscles in the rest of the body, which helps to keep your muscles tight and toned. A kissing session will increase the blood circulation of your face and give you a younger looking complexion.
