A new study published by AsiaOne has revealed that there’s enormous benefit in shedding tears which is backed by scientific evidence.
The website says a recent study shows that emotional crying will help you lose weight because it is linked to hormones that heighten the cortisol level, which is induced when you have bottled up emotions.
As a matter of fact, a biochemist named William Frey even found out that stress-induced tears remove many kinds of toxic substances from the body, and thus concluded that weeping is an excretory process that removes such substances that can build up during times of emotional stress.
In response to this, our body can’t possibly store more fat since you’ve already released the stressful hormones through crying.
However, the study added that tears that were triggered by real emotions will only take effect with this benefit. Scientists also advised shedding your tears from 7 to 10 PM because it’s the best time when you can cry over sad movies or your broken relationships.
So clearly crying has some benefits which we can surely add to our routine to maintain a healthy body.
It sounds funny that you’ll get up one day and decide to cry just because it helps in reducing weight when there are other alternatives but at least with this new information, there’s no need to bottle up teary emotions, just let it out.
