oxytocin is a neuromodulating hormone which is involved in childbirth, bonding, social behavior, trust and wound healing. Oxytocin is thought to aid in wound healing by reducing inflammation by decreasing certain cytokines in the blood. There have been several studies which show increased positive social interactions and increase in oxytocin levels. Oxytocin administration has also been shown to increase trust and decrease fear responses.
