15 Health Benefits of Kissing

1. Reduce Blood Pressure


Interestingly, kissing might also lower cholesterol levels. One study tracked couples who lived together over six weeks. Half of the couples were asked to kiss more frequently than normal, even if setting up a specific time to smooch was necessary. After the six-week period, the couples who kissed more reported lower levels of stress, higher levels of relationship satisfaction and reduced cholesterol levels.

So while diet and exercise are usually suggested to lower cholesterol, it might be time to add kissing to that list, too. Grab a loved one and start reaping these healthy kissing benefits right away!

Kissing helps to dilate your blood vessels, which may help lower your blood pressure.
