Dr Oz: Benefits of Tears

Doctor Oz was asked by a woman if there are benefits of tears?  I know that I always feel better after a cry, and so Dr Oz’s explanation really struck a chord with me.  Benefits of Tears

Benefits of Tears

Dr Oz said that crying is cathartic and can help us to let go of things.  ACTH is found in tears when you cry for emotional reasons, and ACTH are some of the chemicals that make you emotional.  So by crying, you are releasing some of the chemicals that make you feel emotional.  If you have tears being caused by smoke or allergies, then those are just protective tears and do not contain ACTH.
