Some additional health benefits of Viagra

Posted in : News on by : Dr Richard Petty

A new research in Sweden has led to the discovery of another health benefit of Viagra apart from boosting sexual performance. It was recently discovered that Viagra helps to reduce your chances of having a heart attack.

In the research, over 43,000 male patients that were hospitalized for heart attack were studied for a period of three years. 7 percent of them were also on medication for erectile dysfunction. It was found out that the men who were being treated for erectile dysfunction are 40 percent less likely of having a heart attack and 33 percent less likely to die of a medical condition.

This discovery piqued the interest of these researchers and they dug even deeper and were able to discover that it was only the men taking oral sexual enhancing drugs known as PDE5 inhibitors that enjoyed the benefits mentioned above. It is needless to remind you that the most popular PDE5 inhibitors are Cialis and Viagra.

In a nutshell, taking PDE5 inhibitors after a heart attack are 38 percent less likely to lose their lives than those that are not taking any sexual performance enhancing drug or those that are on an injectable ED drug like alprostadil. So, Viagra now has a new health benefit. Well, it is not really new but the benefit was just discovered. This implies that if you have a history of heart attack, and you need to take an ED drugs, you are better off with a PDE5 inhibitor.

This suggests that there is a particular way PDE5 inhibitors work to protect the heart so, the researchers dug even further. While the research is yet to be concluded, it has already been discovered that this class of drugs widens your arteries to enhance more blood to flow to your heart making the heart work less but give optimum output.

In addition, Viagra helps to prevent Gastroparesis. This is a medical condition where the stomach retains food longer than normal making the patient uncomfortable. This is usually caused by damaged vagus nerve, the nerve that controls the pushing down of food from the stomach into the intestine where it will be digested. Scientists at Johns Hopkins University found out that the use of Viagra helps to relax the stomach muscles, thereby aiding the movement of food.

Having gone through these health benefits, you will now realize that taking ED drugs like Viagra is not only a safe choice for men, it also has other health benefits. So, you are better off with Viagra.
