Once thought to be limited to female smooth muscle reproductive physiology the neuropeptide oxytocin has received increased attention in it’s role of modulating various aspects of social-cognitive processing as well as different mood disorders. The evidence points to high correlations between the human need to “belong” to a group or tribe and oxytocin levels. This presentation will review data from numerous studies; from hunter gatherer cultures, to animals, to modern humans as well as some n=1 biohacking data to illuminate wide ranging often surprising implications of the best way to engage our ancestral endocrinology and genetics to maximize health and well-being.
