Oxytocin is a neuropeptide naturally occurring in the human body, known as the “love and trust hormone” for its role in social interactions. It is sold commercially in nasal sprays and injection solution.
Oxytocin does have pronounced anti-stress and anti-anxiety effects and lowers the cortisol levels.
In the official medicine, Oxytocin is used for the induction and stimulation of labor and to promote lactation. Besides that, studies show that it may be used in the treatment of various psychiatric disorders such as autism, mood and anxiety disorders and schizophrenia.
