Those puppy-dog eyes also stress-proof your heart, lowering the risk of heart disease – and improving your immune system. The prescribed dose of puppy-dog eyes is 2 minutes, to get the brain chemical benefits. It makes your levels of oxytocin go up 300%! And your dog gets a boost too. Their levels of oxytocin go up 130%.
