How natural or chemical Viagra works

Erection takes place when the tissues present in penis gets filled with blood. The blood supply is increased due to sexual arousal. During erection the blood vessels which remove blood away from the penis remains contracted, so the blood remains accumulated in penis tissues. When people get sexually, stimulated nitric oxide is released in the blood. Aggregation of guanylate cyclase and nitric oxide produces cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate). This chemical in the blood helps to keep the blood vessels contracted, which takes away blood from the penis. Thus, the penis remains erected for a longer time.

There is an enzyme known as phosphodiesterase 5 or PDE5 is released in the blood during sexual stimulation. This enzyme destroys the cGMP produced and the erection comes to an end. Medications like sildenafil citrate (Viagra), tadalafil and vardenafil (Levitra) inhibits release of PDE5 and helps to keep cGMP in the blood for a longer time. Thus, with increased blood flow the penis remains erected for more time. Natural Viagra inhibits the action of PDE5 with natural components present in them.
