mental ViagraMental Viagra is on the queue after the researchers discovered that a hormone can activate lust signals in the central nervous system. The name of the hormone is kisspeptin which is developed during the puberty period.

This is the hormone that causes a desire for reproduction and this is which makes a person to feel romantic, sexy, as well as turned on. This single hormone is responsible for all the sexual desire that happens in the people.

Mental Viagra to treat psychological sexual problems

When kisspeptin hormone was injected into people who were taken for research purpose, the scientists have found that it triggered certain chemicals in the brain. These are known to occur when a person is aroused. Due to this response, the researchers believe that the hormone might be used to treat sexual problems in a person caused by psychological problems and not physical.

The result has paved way for a new hope to create spark in a failing relationship. The kisspeptin can be taken as a ‘mental Viagra’. There are many researches happening till date and they are more focused on the biological factors that would hinder in the process of conceiving naturally.

But, this research would be a great turning point. These hormones have an impact on the brain and emotional processing and these are also very important for a person. Kisspeptin hormones naturally occur in the body and it would trigger the release of hormones that are responsible for reproduction.

During this research 29 healthy young men were taken and they were injected with this hormone. Later these men were told to look at the photos of romantic couples and images that had no people in it.

MRI scans were introduced in the research to clearly note the results. It was found that when people saw pictures that contain romantic couples, it improved the activity in the brain region that causes arousal. This effect did not happen when the young men saw non-sexy images.

Though it is found that mental Viagra improved sexual desire, there is still need for more studies. This research was conducted on people who are healthy; the next phase is to conduct the research on men with some sexual issues.

The good news about the study is that men who have lower pleasure rating have notified the researchers about the bigger effect that happened on them. Mental Viagra is in all of us and the scientist had a crazy idea about doing a research under this topic. But, the surprising fact is that the results came out to be positive. In addition to that, it also reduced the negativity in the mood which helped researchers to think about using this hormone to treat depression in people.
