Pheromones are aromatic substances which allegedly involve people of the opposite sex. Androstenon is perhaps the most famous of them. It is separated not only from the glands of some animals, but also those of men. Men and every third woman! Not distinguish its odor. What exactly is implied by this pheromone for the women also remains a mystery to science.
It was found that pheromones have not only sexual information. By changing these animals within its territory, reported imminent danger and the need to gather the herd, adjusted parental relationship.
For over 30 years scientists involved in the study of pheromones, but questions are still more than the answers.
It is proven that we do not feel attracted to someone whose smell we do not like. Scientists explain this by the so-called complex: Histo-compatiability. Complex term that has an easy explanation: the most attractive partner for us to smell pleasant, ie have “unique” about us individual odor.
If the set of genes of two highly similar or opposite – too much different, they not only attract, but if for any reason up generation, it has an increased risk of genetic defects – shows that research on these issues .
Odor signals that the genome of the alleged partner (not) fits. That is why many Caucasians define the smell of Negroid as unpleasant smell and our perceived mongoloid race as sharp and acidic.
However, if you like someone’s smells, that just means that he / she fits biologically. The emergence of long drive is needed and other requirements that are outside the field of pheromones – the compatibility of temperament, character, intellect, etc.
Pheromones like substances are considered better than humans. And there are a number of facts:
It is proved that the body of the nursing mother produces substances that affect the fertility of other women. The biological meaning of this phenomenon is not cleared yet .Perhaps this is the instinctive desire of the mother to increase the fertility of other women to allow her child to grow and develop in a society of peers.
• Male pheromones are able to improve mood in some women. As a result, the blood of women is changing the level of certain hormones, especially those involved in regulating the menstrual cycle and reproductive function.
Specific pheromones smell because they consist of only one substance, but a complex of at least a few. Some smells we perceive by sense of smell, but not others, as they are processed by the limbic system of the brain responsible for what is colloquially called intuition.
