How does Viagra Connect work?
An erection is initiated when sexual arousal stimulates centres within the brain thereby increasing levels of a chemical called nitric oxide.
This in turn activates the production of other chemicals within the body which allows the arteries in the penis to fill with blood, and this then produces an erection.
In the cases of erectile dysfunction, some men may have a defect in the chemical pathway in the brain, which eventually causes reduced blood flow to the penis preventing an erection even after sexual stimuli.
Viagra connect helps increase the flow of blood into the blood vessels of the penis by triggering these chemical signals during sexual stimuli, resulting in a prolonged and better erection.
