power of smell is undeniable, as the multi-billion dollar
perfume industry testifies. But, is it possible that humans
are influenced by airborne chemicals undetectable as odors,
called pheromones? It appears so. Pheromones are natural
chemical scents the body produces in order to attract others.
Scientific studies have actually shown that people who used
synthesized pheromones had sex more often. Researchers at
the University of Chicago said, The power of scent
is undeniable, humans are influenced by airborne chemicals
undetectable as odors, called pheromones.Their research
found the first proof that humans produce and react to pheromones.
Perhaps pheromone products also tend to give guys a boost of
confidence they need to ask women out and vice versa.
Does Smell Work Anyway?
sense of smell belongs to the chemical sensing system of
our brain. This complicated process of begins when tiny
molecules released by the substances around us stimulate
special cells in the nose, mouth, or throat. These special
sensory cells transmit messages through nerves to the brain
where specific smells are identified. Smell nerve cells,
or olfactory nerve cells are stimulated by the odors around
us. The smell of bread baking, a field of flowers or your
wet dog are all processed by the brain. These nerve cells
are found in a small patch of tissue high inside the nose.
The olfactory sense is interpreted by the part of the brain
that is connected to our emotions. Scents have a powerful
effect on our moods.
Are Pheromones Really?
are naturally occurring chemicals that send out signals
to the opposite sex (or the same sex) that trigger power
word pheromones is taken from the Greek words pherein, meaning
to transfer, and hormon, meaning to excite.
Pheromones are odorless, airborne chemical signals that
are released by an individual into the environment. These
chemicals affect the physiology or behavior of other members
of the same species. Although pheromones have been shown
to exist in virtually all species of insects and mammals,
they also control the behavior of humans, acting as sexual
attractants. The secretion of pheromones by humans is believed
to dramatically increase both desirability and sexual attractiveness
in both men and women.
at the University of Chicago say they have the first proof
that humans produce and react to pheromones. In findings
published in the journal Nature, they claim they
found that female ovulation can be regulated -- made longer
or shorter -- through the use of pheromones. Maybe something
to try if you're looking for that someone special. The
pheromones regulate the time of ovulation. There are two
pheromones -- one that makes ovulation more likely and the
other that suppresses it and makes it less likely,
said Martha McClintock of the University of Chicago. So,
if you find yourself feeling attracted to someone, but you
don't know why. It may indeed be due to their scent. Or,
if you see someone you are attracted to, but when you meet
them, the attraction is gone, again, it might be pheromones
at work again. You can search the Internet and find tons
of pheromone products for sale. Buy with caution, many are
just looking for your money.
people use aromatherapy for relaxation
or invigoration. I do and it works for me. Now I've got to try some pheromones.
