Oxytocin, a natural protein hormone, plays important roles in sexual reproduction, childbirth, bonding between mother and child during breast feeding and wound healing. New research suggests that it may boost cognitive performance, reduce cardiovascular risk, and offset the effects of diabetes.
Based on ability to improve rates of wound healing and modulate inflammatory cytokines, researches speculated that oxytocin may also play a role in protecting the heart and vascular system. The peptide has been found to help lower fat mass, improve glucose tolerance, decrease blood pressure and relieve anxiety. All of these are important factors in cardiovascular disease (CVD) and thus it is not unreasonable to think that oxytocin might be useful adjuvant to existing CVD treatment.
Rare side effects include confusion, convulsions, difficulty in breathing, dizziness, fast or irregular heartbeat, headache, hives, pelvic or abdominal pain, skin rash or itching, vaginal bleeding, weakness, weight gain.
