How does Tastylia 20 mg Work
Reduced blood flow is one cause of erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil present in Tastylia strips works to improve the blood circulation towards the penile tissue by relaxing the blood vessels & smooth muscles.
- On sexual stimulation, nitric oxide gets released into the penis.
- Nitric oxide enables the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).
- cGMP regulates the flow of blood by influencing the compression and dilation of the blood-carrying vessels.
- Enhanced blood flow causes a penile erection.
- The action of cGMP is halted by the enzyme phosphodiesterase 5 which relaxes the erection.
- Tadalafil restricts the activity of the PDE 5 enzyme which lengthens the duration of the erection.
