Kisspeptin the Mental Viagra Hormone Turns On Sex Drive in Older Men

A new hormone has been shown to improve the sex drive of old men. The kisspeptin hormone can be used to improve the sex drive of older men by increasing the activity in the brain specifically the part that deals with romance and sexual arousal making them more likely to initiate activities that will lead to sexual intercourse.

The research was conducted on men who had problems with their sex life. They were given a dose of the hormone and were shown images of sexual and non-sexual pictures of couples. The men’s MRI scans showed increased activity in the part of the brain that registers sexual arousal. The emotional activity was not affected by the hormone. The results led to the drug being known as mental Viagra as it stimulates the brain.

Kisspeptin can be seen as an effective treatment for psycho-sexual disorders. Since the treatment is safe, it can be used for couples that want to conceive but cannot due to low sex drive. The hormone is found in every person, and it stimulates the release of other reproductive hormones. It reduces negative moods and increases positive moods associated with romantic love. Participants in the study discovered they do not get upset as easily as they did before.

Using the hormone to treat infertility will continue being researched since the methods being used currently focus on the biological issues that prevent ladies from conceiving. The hormone is what starts the process of puberty. Low levels can cause infertility since they prevent the woman from ovulating. However, getting injected with the drug triggers ovulation in women making them have higher chances of conceiving.Using the hormone can prove to be effective in dealing with these issues since the emotions and responses that lead to reproduction are important.

Kisspeptin can be seen as the future treatment method for low sex drive.Further studies on kisspeptin are being carried out to find out if the hormone can be used to treat other conditions like depression and other psycho-sexual behaviors.
