Pheromones: What we Know

By : Lola

Pheromones – fact, fiction or fantasy……..

Pheromones are chemical substances that are usually produced by an animal and serve as a stimulus to other individuals of the same species for one or more behavioral responses

Pheromones are airborne chemical messengers released from the body (through, for example, sweat and urine) that have a physical or emotional effect on another member of the same species.

Typically found in sweat, we do know olfactory cues have subtle ways of indicating fertility and familial identification. Parent-child bonding begins with scent and smelling. With the cycle, body odor attractiveness peaks around the time an egg is released.

According to ABC News females and males of many species can communicate through chemical signals called pheromones, there has remained some question as to whether humans can communicate this way as well.

Using brain imaging, Swedish researchers have found new evidence that men and women can in fact send and receive subconscious odor signals producing changes in mood, heart rate, breathing, and body temperature. However, there is currently no indication these chemicals can actually increase sexual arousal or attraction.
However, fans, research is still blurry on whether they can actually increase sexual arousal or attraction.

Just gotta try it on yourself.
