Laughter promotes the production of hormones that boost the immune system, according to a 2006 Linda Loma University study.
Hormones tested in the study included:
Beta-Endorphins—helps to numb pain and counteract depression.
Human Growth Hormones—stimulates cell growth and reproduction, and boosts immunity.
Increases of 30 to 90 percent were documented in patients actively laughing or even thinking about something funny.
