Cenforce 150mg is a medicine that is used to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED). It belongs to the class of drugs called PDE 5 inhibitors. It works by promoting blood flow in the penis, which helps men in getting and maintaining an erection.
ED is common in most men and can occur due to several reasons. Some of these reasons include obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. However, it is most commonly caused by atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries.
The arteries of the penis have to open properly so that blood can reach the penis and create an erection. This is achieved through a process of nitric oxide production. This can be increased through certain nutrients such as beets, spinach, and collard greens. These vegetables are rich in nitrates, which cover up to nitric oxide produced by the body.
Sildenafil citrate is the salt in Cenforce 200 and it is an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase type 5. When phosphodiesterase is inhibited, it can release cGMP and it makes it possible for blood to reach the penis. Moreover, cGMP increases the nitric oxide levels in the penis and this in turn leads to an increase in erection.
This effect lasts for up to four hours after the drug is taken. This is why it is considered a very effective medication to treat ED.
