He further explained: "It also boasts our immunity as kissing exposes us to the potential germs lurking in another person's mouth and equips our bacteria with the ability to fight them off. 

"Passionate kissing can cause us to use multiple muscles in the body and some studies have suggested that you can burn as much as 26 calories per minute. That's over 100 calories in less than five minutes."

But wait, there's more to it.

Jacob elaborated on the chemical reactions induced by kissing, saying: "The physical act of kissing can cause your brain to release a cocktail of chemicals— including oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin.

"These can cause a euphoric feeling and also encourage us to feel affectionate and want to bond."

He added a comforting note for those feeling stressed: "Kissing can also reduce the body's cortisol levels, which can help you to relax and reduce stress. 

"Cortisol is what your body releases during fight or flight and it's linked to stress and anxiety."

Lastly, he touched on a particularly thrilling advantage of kissing. 

"Kissing can cause your heart rate to increase which in turn, causes your blood vessels to dilate. 

"When this happens, it can lead to an immediate decrease in your blood pressure which is great for a healthy heart."

Jacob concluded with an additional health perk related to kissing. 

"Kissing can increase your heart rate, which can cause your blood vessels to dilate. 

"When this happens, it can increase blood flow and that can help to relieve pain like menstrual cramps or migraines.

"Plus, the boost of serotonin in our body is also said to be a natural pain reliever."
