Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction is the failure to obtain and maintain an erection.
The dysfunction can be a result of various causes.
Physical damage, medical conditions, and even stress or depression can contribute to the development of Impotence.
Caverta 100 mg is an effective solution for the condition.
How does Caverta work?
A lack of blood circulation in the penile area is the primary cause of Erectile Dysfunction.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active component in Caverta.
It is an inhibitor of Phosphodiesterase Type 5 (PDE5), which is a naturally occurring enzyme in the penile region.
It controls the levels of Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP).
cGMP is in charge of vasodilation. Enhanced PDE5 levels impede the synthesis of cGMP.
The outcome is less blood supply to the penis and associated problems with erections.
PDE5 inhibitors inhibit the synthesis of PDE5 enzymes.
This resulted in the smoothing of the body's blood vessels and increased blood flow to the penile region.
