Oxytocin 50 unit sublingual tablets
Oxytocin is a hormone related to pregnancy and breastfeeding that also affects social bonding. It is sometimes called “the love hormone.” A decrease in oxytocin usually comes with the onset of menopause but there are other factors that may hinder production including stress and a decrease in related hormones. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with oxytocin may help balance hormone levels to improve well-being.
Oxytocin and Health
Oxytocin is involved in many kinds of social bonding and is related to pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is connected to other hormones in your body and contributes to your general health. This important hormone supports thyroid function and helps with stress management. Low levels of oxytocin have been linked to anxiety, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, migraines, and other health problems. Oxytocin play an essential role in breastfeeding, signaling the production of breast milk. Lower levels of oxytocin have also been associated with weight gain and obesity.
Oxytocin Tablets and HRT
Taking oxytocin sublingual tablets as part of a hormone replacement therapy treatment plan may help restore levels of this essential hormone. Levels of oxytocin in cerebrospinal fluid have been correlated to blood levels, which allows for testing and monitoring. In hospital settings, oxytocin is often administered with an intramuscular injection. Sublingual tablets can be made by a compounding pharmacy for prescriptions used at home.
