    It turns out crying is a lot more complicated than it usually feels. The info comes courtesy of a viral TikTok that has plenty of people sharing their amazement. The video, posted by the Institute of Human Anatomy (IOHA), explains the science behind our tears. According to an IOHA employee, there’s a lot more than water coming out when we cry. In fact, there are tons of substances in our tears — ranging from hormones and electrolytes to mucus and fat molecules. The video goes on to show exactly where tears come from. Mainly, that culprit is the lacrimal glands, which are located just above each eye. From there, the tears find their way to your nasal cavity, and ultimately your throat. “Unless of course you’r crying because you’re hyper-emotional and you make too many tears,” the employee explains lightheartedly. “Then it just drips down your face, so everyone can see”. “I just learned so much!
