How does Vidalista 60 mg Works
For an erection to occur, the nitric acid gets released inside the smooth muscle tissue of the penis on sexual arousal. The nitric acid then stimulates the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) which controls the dilation & contraction of the blood vessels of the penis. The increased levels of the cGMP result in a firm erection. As part of a natural feedback mechanism, an enzyme called Phosphodiesterase 5 is released which interacts with cGMP and stops its action. Vidalista, being a PDE5 inhibitor, obstructs the action of the PDE5 enzyme resulting in prolonged erection, and temporary relief from ED.
