How does Sildenafil Oral Jelly work?
Sildenafil is a PDE-5 inhibitor and its purpose is to temporarily stop the secretion of the enzyme PDE5 (phosphodiesterase-5). With the inhibition of the PDE5 enzyme, the body stops the degradation of cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate, eventually increasing the secretion of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide dilates the blood vessels located in the penis by relaxing the muscles. This increases blood supply to the penile organ to cause an erection.
