Sildenafil Citrate 50mg

Sildenafil Citrate 50mg are moderate-dose pills that relieve erectile dysfunction problems in males. Erectile dysfunction or impotence results due to lack of blood flow to the penile, but Sildenafil Citrate boosts the flow of blood to the penile and improves the erection function. A single pill consists of 50mg strength of Sildenafil Citrate, which improves the erectile response in men having mild to moderate intensity of impotence issues. These pills yield desired results only in the presence of arousal.
Their function is to dilate the clogged and blocked arteries of the penile and relax them completely. This relaxation allows more and more blood to flow inside the penile organ. This blood flow supplies the penile with oxygen and nutrients. Sildenafil Citrate has been classified under phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor compounds, which are responsible for inhibiting the action of PDE5 enzymes and preventing them from clogging the vascular passages of the penile. Inhibition of PDE5 by Sildenafil Citrate causes an increase of blood supply to the penile.

  • Once the pill gets assimilated into the bloodstream, it begins its action by conducting vasodilation in the penile shaft. Vasodilation leads to complete relaxation of the strained blood vessels and expands them to accommodate more blood inside.
  • For a healthy erection function, the penile should get adequate blood supply. But due to the action of PDE5 enzymes, the blood vessels turn hard, which blocks the flow of blood inside the penile. The pill boosts blood circulation inside the penile and helps in attaining harder erections.
