It is difficult to believe in things that you cannot hold in your hand, look at, and smell. This is an issue that comes up when discussing religion, but it also comes up when discussing the existence of pheromones. Those who believe in pheromones believe they are invisible, scentless chemicals that are released from the body to attract potential mates. The fact that they are believed to be detected in the brain but cannot be outright smelled makes some people skeptical.
It is believed that pheromones are emitted from the sweat and pores of the human body and detected in the brain of others. This explains why you may feel differently when meeting potential mates. If presented with two potential mates that both look similar and fit your preferences for mates, you may feel an undeniable attraction to one and nothing for the other. It is believed that you are detecting pheromones from that one mate that piques your interest in their direction.
Pheromones in Nature
Whether you are inclined to believe that pheromones exist or not, you have to admit that there is substantial evidence for their existence. Studies have been published throughout this century showing that pheromones are at work with humans as well as many other species.
For example, Nature magazine published a study that revealed drastic changes in mice when they were injected with pheromones. Nursing female mice were far more aggressive toward intruders with the pheromones than without them. Male mice changed their sexual behaviors drastically when there were pheromones at play as well.
This is just one study of many that has tackled this subject. Many species of animals have shown a natural reaction and change in behavior when presented with pheromones. This is why so many people believe that behavior can also be changed in humans when pheromones are at play.
Top Pheromones and Your Sex Life
Pheremone products, such as colognes, are designed to introduce strong pheromones into the human system for the benefit of attracting potential mates. Men are the primary users of these products today, but women are starting to use them in greater numbers as well. These users believe that they appear more attractive to others when they are wearing these products. The scent goes to the brain of others, sending signals that they have specific features, such as strength, dominance, and aggressiveness.
If you are curious about pheromone products, there is enough research to validate a personal experience with a high quality product featuring the right pheromone. You have to determine the type of pheromone that will send the signals you want to give out, and then find a product that features that pheromone. Wear it consistently for at least a few weeks before you decide whether it is benefiting your love life or not.
You cannot expect that every woman or man in existence will be crawling all over you if you wear a pheromone cologne or lotion. You should see heightened attention from some potential mates, which is the sign that they are picking up on the scent you are giving out. It is still up to you to seal the deal and turn that heightened interest into something more substantial.
Male pheromones release when a man sweats. Pheromones have a direct subconscious influence on both men and women. Studies show that when men perspire under their arms, the scent has a calming effect on women and even on their fertility. In a study at the University of Pennsylvania, 18 women between 25 and 45 felt less stressful after male sweat was applied to their lips. The study looked at the effects of scents from perfume to lemon scented floor wax to men’s sweat. The male sweat made them more relaxed and less stressful. The women did not know it was male sweat extract, they did not know what any of the substances were in the study. They reacted more to the male extract than to any of the others. This was a surprising discovery of the powers of the male pheromones.
Active pheromones secret from men’s underarms and in fact, this pheromone happens throughout the animal kingdom as well. Exposure to these pheromones causes women’s bodies to respond. Studies show that women released an increased level of luteinizing hormone when breathing in the pheromones. Luteinizing hormones are responsible for telling the body to ovulate. This shows that women will activate to want to mate because ovulation brings on increased desire to have sexual intercourse.
Studies show the potential of pharmacological research into helping women to relax and ovulate by the presence of the male odor. Research for creating this scent, this odor is underway after observing the effects the male sweat has on a woman’s body. Studies show that men seem to affect women more when they bathed in fragrance-free soaps along with the absence of deodorant. The pheromones have the strongest affect on women nearing ovulation. There is a definite response from the pheromones to the endocrine system.
Researchers are working to identify the exact compounds within the male sweat hoping to isolate the exact one that garners the response in the women. This will be a huge leap in “fertility” studies as well, perhaps helping more women to have a good strong ovulation from the hormone response. It may work to help balance menstrual cycles in women, by helping to prompt ovulation at the correct times. This will offer a natural approach to otherwise intrusive treatments in dealing with fertility and infertility.
If research can pinpoint the compounds that stimulate the ovulation response in women, it will bring a completely new arena to infertility treatments. Instead of taking drugs that cause the ovaries to release many eggs and risk a pregnancy with multiples, a simple application of this wonderful compound on the upper lip may give a natural boost to fertility. How simple this is and yet how profound it is to a huge group of women who suffer from infertility.
