What is Vigora 100
Vigora 100 belongs to a class of medication known as Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors.
Sildenafil Citrate, the main ingredient in the drug, is highly useful in treating Erectile Dysfunction.
Vigora tablet increases the blood flow to the penile region and helps you get a firm erection.
The drug does not protect from Sexually Transmitted Diseases(STDs), and it is always a good idea to use safety before engaging in sexual intercourse.
Uses of Vigora
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) affects many men all over the world. Also known as 'Impotence', men suffering from this sexual dysfunction cannot get or maintain a firm erection.
This condition can be caused due to a physical injury or medical conditions such as Diabetes or Obesity.
The number of men with ED is estimated to grow, yet, this condition is rarely discussed. Vigora is a safe and effective medicine for the treatment of ED.
It is used to help sustain an erection by increasing the blood flow to the penile region.
How does Vigora 100 work
The root cause of impotence is insufficient blood flow to the penis.
Sildenafil, the main ingredient in medicine, controls the enzyme PDE5, which breaks down Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP).
cGMP helps the blood vessels relax—the higher the cGMP, the more prolonged the erection.
Vigora pills block PDE5, which increases blood flow to the penile area resulting in a firm erection for a better sexual experience.
For this medicine to work, the penis must be physically stimulated.
Vigora 100mg is a prescription drug and should be taken only after consulting a doctor.
