Stress, improper diet and irregular sleep cycle may cause erectile dysfunction in men and they are not able to enjoy their sex life. Men suffering from ED face difficulty in achieving erection and are not able to keep the erection for a longer time. This leads to premature ejaculation leaving both the partners unsatisfied.
Impotency and erectile dysfunction are common problems today owing to the defective lifestyle people follow. The fast paced life has left the people with no time to have a balanced diet and follow an exercise regime. Stressing resulting from work and personal problems aggravate the problems. The disorder has an adverse impact on the relationship and also results in loss of self-confidence in men.
Silagra has been found to be highly effective in treating impotency and erectile dysfunction in men. It can be used by people who are not able to achieve erection and also helps them keep a prolonged erection for better love making. The drug can also be used for male libido enhancement and thereby attaining greater physcial satisfaction. It contains Sildenafil Citrate also present in Viagra, considered a trusted medication for impotency.
Silagra works by increasing the blood flow in the soft muscles of the male organ causing an erection. A chemical produced by the body that leads to smooth muscle relaxation is protected from degradation by Sildenafil Citrate and thus causes firm and prolonged erection.
The erection of the male organ is directly related to the flow of blood in its soft tissues. Tension and stress cause cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate) to degrade which results in vasoconstriction in soft muscles of the penis. The drug is an inhibitor of cGMP specific phosphodiesterase which is responsible for the degradation.
As this degradation is stopped, vasodilation of arteries occurs resulting in increased blood flow in the male organ, causing erection. Once the male reproductive organ is erect, the veins and the arteries get stiff and blocked, thereby retaining the blood in them to keep the stiffness intact for a long time.
