Oxytocin is a natural human hormone primarily  known for its significance during pregnancy/birth.

However, many new aspects of its possible additional properties are known today.
New research (from animal studies) suggests that it may help to

- reduce alcohol craving and consumption
- reduce alcohol toxicity
- reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

These new findings might helpt to develop a new koind of "sobriety pill" eventually.
