How does Tadaflo 20 mg Work
Improper flow of blood towards penile tissue may cause erectile dysfunction in men. This can happen as a side effect of any medication that you are taking or because of any medical conditions that impact reproductive organs. Psychological reasons may also impact a man’s ability to successfully achieve and sustain an erection.
- Similar to Cialis or Viagra, these pills also act on the smooth muscles in the penis and relax them.
- Nitric oxide is released inside the penis on sexual stimulation, which facilitates the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).
- cGMP controls the amount of blood that enters the penis by regulating the compaction and dilation of the blood-carrying vessels.
- When the blood flow to the penis increases, firm erection results.
- The natural body process that controls the duration of erection is an enzyme called Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) which opposes the activity of cGMP.
- The active element in the Tadaflo tablets restricts PDE 5 enzyme from working and prolongs the erection.
