    Q. ‘Jaadu ki jhappi’ is indeed a natural stress buster. Try it!


    Ans. Yes! A ‘Jaadu ki jhappi’ can work miracles where medicines sometimes fail. Actually, when we hug, kiss or embrace a loved one, a hormone called ‘oxytocin’ is released into the bloodstream by pituitary gland. This hormone, also known as the ‘love hormone’ or ‘cuddle hormone’ acts as a chemical messenger and influences the human behaviour including recognition, trust and emotional bonding. It is best known for its functions for triggering lactation and labour pain during childbirth hence it is known as birth hormone. An increased level of oxytocin released into the blood helps in the reduction of blood pressure and lowering the level of ‘cortisol’ hormone which is a stress hormone that can even weaken our immune system.
