The Major Uses of Sildenafil
Sildenafil, also known as Viagra commercially, is known to increase blood flow in blood vessels. It does this by relaxing the muscles of the blood vessel walls to certain areas of the body. Its main use is in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, also known as, impotence, in men. It could be taken up to 4 hours before sexual activity. It helps you maintain an erection during sexual activity.
Sildenafil in Bodybuilding
Sildenafil contains Nitric oxide (NO) and is used as a pre-workout drug. The most basic effect of Sildenafil is to increase blood flow, not only to the penis but also to muscles. More blood flow means an increase in resistance exercise, followed by an increase in the nutrient flow to muscles.
It increases testosterone levels, which is good for exercise as mentioned above. It also increases estrogen levels, but only in men with not too much body fat, and a BMI of less than 27.
Bodybuilders can henceforth lift more weight, perform more reps with and approach than usual. Thus, coefficient useful weight training increases, thanks to the opinion that Viagra is another donor of nitrogen.
Sildenafil is also an essential component of other bodybuilding supplements, also known as pre-workout vasodilators. This substance works on the artery walls and prevents them from tightening and narrowing. Blood can flow easily between them. As a result of this, blood pressure is also reduced.
Sildenafil also enhances blood flow by blocking the action of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which triggers the relaxation of smooth muscle and the production of nitric oxide (NO). NO boosting agents are used in pre-workout supplements to increase power output as well as strength, build unbreakable endurance and motivation, and reduce time-to-fatigue.
