Right... I'm gonna call ******** on that one.
Now, assuming I was able to catch this one as a fraud, I'm going to assume a few others are.

when you do your research, make sure to check more than one source, hormones have more than one use:
"Oxytocin evokes feelings of contentment, reductions in anxiety, and feelings of calmness and security around the mate.[24] Many studies have already shown a correlation of oxytocin with human bonding, increases in trust, and decreases in fear. One study confirmed a positive correlation between oxytocin plasma levels and an anxiety scale measuring the adult romantic attachment.[25] This suggests oxytocin may be important for the inhibition of the brain regions associated with behavioral control, fear, and anxiety, thus allowing ****** to occur. Oxytocin also functions to protect against stress. Meta-analyses conducted in 2003 demonstrated that oxytocin can alleviate mood and reduce stress with alarming efficiency.[26]"
