Exciting news came this weekend with the announcement of the strongest research findings yet linking oxytocin nasal spray and the relief of autistic symptoms. After receiving oxytocin via nasal spray, a group of autistic patients become more social and open, according to Elissar Andri, of the French government center for neuroscience research.
Scientists have found that some symptoms of autism can be alleviated by a nasal spray containing oxytocin, the “bonding” hormone. People with autism who inhaled the spray altered their behaviour temporarily, becoming more sociable and trusting.
Although pharmaceutical oxytocin spray may be some years away, as somebody who has been diagnosed with asperger’s syndrome, I can give you my anecdotal experience with ‘Liquid Trust’ oxytocin nasal spray – a commerical oxytocin spray marketed as a product that leads others to trust you more readily. I first bought Liquid Trust because I had read about oxytocin and the research linking it to the ability to socialize, trust, and bond with others. As this is something I have always had problems with then I thought that this might be worth a go, having already tried a variety of largely unsuccessful medical treatments ranging from seroxat to cognitive therapy. I can honestly say that Liquid Trust has worked better than any previous treatment and when using it, I genuinely do feel more open, sociable, communicative, and trusting of others. And other people do seem to be more trusting and relaxed in my company – I don’t know whether this is because I am more relaxed and sociable or because they too are inhaling the oxytocin spray (as the makers of Liquid Trust intend).
If you are thinking about trying this oxytocin spray as a means of alleviating the symptoms of aspergers syndrome or other social cognitive problem such as social anxiety, bear in mind that Liquid Trust is not intended to be inhaled directly but rather worn like a perfume (although the spray is odourless).
The Daily Mail reports that researchers are using oxytocin nasal spray to treat women with interstitial cystitis, or chronic inflammation of the bladder wall. The trial is based on the observation that breast feeding women (who have naturally raised levels of oxytocin) often have cystitis symptoms reduced. Those behind the trial at the University of Alabama believe that oxytocin has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Currently, the only oxytocin spray available to purchase online is Liquid Trust. For a short time, the makers of Liquid Trust are running a number of special offers for you to buy their oxytocin product at a much reduced rate.
For example, you can buy a 2 week supply of oxytocin spray for just $29.95 (saving $10) and even a 6 month supply for just $99.95 (saving you an incredible $110).

A new oxytocin study, a new discovery as to the effects of the ‘Love Hormone’ on human behaviour. A team of British researchers based have confirmed that a person who has inhaled a whiff of oxytocin will find people more sexually attractive. According to Angeliki Theodoridou, a psychologist at the University of Bristol, after inhaling oxytocin “we are more likely to see people we don’t know in a more positive light”.
Theodoridou’s team tested 96 men and women in a double-blind placebo-controlled trial. After participants got either a spritz of oxytocin or a placebo, they were asked to rate pictures of 48 men and women for attractiveness and 30 for trustworthiness. Her team also tested for mood.
No matter their sex or mood, volunteers who received oxytocin rated male and female strangers as both more attractive and trusting.
Oxytocin nasal sprays are soon going to be a multi-million dollar industry. Presently, only one company sells oxytocin sprays as a means of improving trust and sexual attractiveness. You can click to buy Liquid Trust oxytocin spray here.
I thought it would be useful to summarise why Oxytocin is attracting so much scientific and media interest.
Oxytocin is a hormone, and therefore, a naturally occurring substance produced by the human body. Women have this hormone in their systems to a greater level than men, and it has been found to increase during and after child birth, giving scientists the first indication that the hormone may play a role in the psychological bonding between mother and child. Further research has found increased levels of Oxytocin are associated with feelings of less stress and greater trust and empathy, leading the hormone to earn the media tag of ‘the love hormone’ or ‘the cuddle hormone’.
There has recently been an explosion of research across various institutes across the world seeking to confirm the role of Oxytocin in creating empathic psychological states and its consequent possible benefits in treating psychological problems ranging from social anxiety to autism and schizophrenia.
It is unlikely that we will be seeing Oxytocin drugs or pills anytime soon, as it has been found that the only effective delivery method to get the hormone inside the blood stream is to inhale it through the nose. Thus, it is likely that any Oxytocin medical or commercial uses of Oxytocin in the near future will come in the form of Oxytocin nasal sprays.
Here is a brief list of what Oxytocin Nasal Sprays might do for individuals and for society :
Reduce social anxiety and shyness in individuals
Treat the symptoms of Autism and asperger’s syndrome
Treat the secondary and possibly even the primary symptoms (delusions) of paranoid schizophrenics
Help couples maintain relationships
Reduce levels of stress
Increase attractiveness to the opposite sex
Help businessmen make sales (by increasing trust and empathy)
Help people to pass interviews
Reduce anti-social behaviour in schools, crowds etc
Be (misused) by advertisers and politicians seeking to ‘sell’ their goods or promises
It’s not difficult to see why interest in Oxytocin is growing, not only are there big bucks to be made from successful commercial and medical applications, the hormone could have radical effects on society and culture itself. If you think back to the changes wrought in the 1960’s due to the widespread use of mood altering drugs such as LSE and consider that Oxytocin might become a safe and legal substance providing the positive social effects and more from such drugs, without the negative ones, then we really could be on the brink of a new flower power era.
Liquid Trust is an oxytocin spray designed to be worn like a perfume. In this way, not only will you gain confidence by breathing in the oxytocin, those you meet will inhale the spray too, something that, in theory, should lead them to be more trusting and positive towards you.
