Some men just couldn’t find that one thing to spice up their sex lives. Thankfully, some scientists found out something that could do the job for them.

According to Daily Mail, the study published in Journal of Clinical Investigation found out that Kisspeptin is the hormone in the brain to help men become more interested in love, sex, and relationship. Interesting as it may seem, men could experience a sweet sex life through something made from chocolate since chocolate contains the said hormone to boost sex drive.

The study included 29 men who had undergone the Kisspeptin injections. Through MRI Scans, it was found out that the men showed arousal from romantic and sexual photos of couples. The results also stay the same even though they were shown not romantic photos which lead the scientists to say that the drug could also help people with psychological sexual problems per Daily Star.

Thus, Imperial London lead author researcher, Professor Waljit Dhillo stated that Kisspeptin injections are also hoped to be the cure for people who are having a hard time making a baby. He also added that “Most of the research and treatment methods for infertility to date have focused on the biological factors that may make it difficult for a couple to conceive naturally.”

The research then credits the function of the Kisspeptin which is discovered in the mid-1990’s and named after the famous Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses. They pointed out that the arousal effect comes from Kisspeptin’s role in starting puberty which is releasing of reproductive hormones.

With that said, India Times also shared that the Kisspeptin mental Viagra has other benefits aside from treating psychological sex disorders and conceiving issues. It was noted by the first author of the research, Dr. Alexander Comninos that it could also decrease negativity. Hence, it could be beneficial to women in terms of decreasing depression.

Edinburgh University also pointed out that the Kisspeptin injections also boosts testosterone levels too. Yet, Dr. Comninos noted that regarding the other benefits of Kisspeptin, they would need further investigations for conclusions.
