On an annual basis, millions of men are affected by erectile dysfunction (ED), leading them to doubt their sexual potency. According to the National Institutes of Health, >50% of men >60 years of age experience ED. However, across the adult aging spectrum, all men can be affected by ED. Fatigue, stress, work and family conflicts, alcohol abuse, and heavy smoking can lead to ED. In the modern urban environment, the mean age in which ED affects men is dropping, while commonly striking younger men. Often ED occurs because of work-related stress, exhaustion, lack of sleep, disease, and psychological factors.
A physician typically recommends the diagnosis of ED if a man is unable to achieve a firm erection and perform sexual intercourse for more than a few minutes. As such, to treat ED, there have been significant scientific and pharmaceutical advances in therapeutic approaches, which include, for example, vacuum constriction devices, penile implants, and plastic surgery. Despite the availability of these therapies, most men would prefer the option of being able to achieve a natural erection without needing a surgical procedure.
What are the causes of ED? Several intrinsic factors can increase the risk of developing ED such as excessive weight.
The male erection is a work of art and to achieve one, it is necessary for the integration of multiple organs such as those involving the hormonal, cardiovascular, nervous, and muscular systems. A breakdown at any point in this network can impair the functionality of the male sexual organ. At a quick glance, even unrelated health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, smoking, Parkinson’s disease, and prostatitis can cause sexual impotence. Moreover, recent empirical evidence suggests that there is a direct link between alcohol abuse and sexual impotence whereby approximately 72% of alcoholics experience ED.
When experiencing ED, it is important that one not ignore the problem and to seek consultation with a physician immediately. Impotence can lead to other adverse psychological and physiological outcomes, which can worsen the overall effects of ED. Nevertheless, it is possible to treat ED with innovative and safe pharmacological products.
Cialis is one of the most effective drugs aimed at treating ED and improving male sexual health. Contained within Cialis are ingredients such as oyster and seaweed extracts. When taking Cialis, this can restore a normal erection and extend the duration of sexual intercourse. Overall, taking Cialis can significantly improve the quality and quantity of sex for men. Cialis primarily exerts its benefits via a main active ingredient, which is Tadalafil. This drug belongs to the group of inhibitors that can be used to help men achieve and keep a firm erection while successfully performing sexual intercourse.
After administration of Cialis, the active ingredient is absorbed into blood and begins to work in tissues of the sexual organ by relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow whereby leading to an erection. However, it is important to note that an erection occurs only in cases of sexual stimulation, and without this, there is no desired effect. Men should also understand that taking Cialis does not treat the underlying cause of the problem coupled with poor blood circulation. Cialis also demonstrates a limited time of potency, which is approximately 36 hours. However, when compared with its analogs, Cialis is still the longest lasting drug.
Because of its effectiveness, Cialis can restore self-confidence in men with ED. Clinical trials suggest that >80% of patients with ED of different etiologies after taking Cialis demonstrate positive results and improved erections.
According to the instructions, one 20 mg tablet of Cialis can be taken with or without food 30 minutes before the planned sexual contact. The active ingredient in Cialis can be expected to begin acting 15-30 minutes after ingestion. Importantly, it is important for men to understand that physicians do not recommend taking more than the prescribed dose of Cialis because this can lead to undesirable consequences concerning male health.
