Viagra (Sildenafil Citrate)

Sildenafil Citrate is an oral therapy for ED. It is the citrate salt of sildenafil, a selective inhibitor of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5).

Viagra causes relaxation of smooth muscles and rapidly increases blood flow to certain areas of the man’s body. Viagra offers both psychological and physiological benefits by enabling a man to improve his performance and confidence and get rid of the performance anxiety.

The specifics of action involve the binding of nitric oxide to the guanylate cyclase receptors, which increases cGMP levels. This produces a smooth muscle relaxation, which in turn opens the pathway for increased blood flow. Viagra belongs to GMP Specific Phosphodiesterase type 5 or PED5.

Viagra provides the ability to produce or maintain an erection. However, it cannot be stressed enough that this only pertains to those with blood flow issues. If the ED issue is based on a hormone deficiency the use of Viagra or any PED5 may not help. In other cases, it may require both the use of hormone therapy and PED5 medication. Some individuals may also find the issue is psychologically related.

Effects

  1. Delayed Puberty – it’s no secret; in most all cases children have no business supplementing with anabolic androgenic steroids as such use can severely damage their fragile and developing androgen system; often irreversibly. However, as anabolic steroids are based upon the primary androgens, the very androgens a child may not be producing, if delayed puberty is a problem they are often the only thing that will remedy the situation. Almost all anabolic steroids can be used for this purpose to a degree, but it is normally and should be a last resort.
  2. Low Testosterone – without question, this is the most common reason for therapeutic anabolic steroid treatment, and one millions of men the world over are more than thankful for. If you suffer from low testosterone, you can suffer physically, sexually and even mentally, and as you’re lacking this primary androgen there’s nothing better to correct this lacking condition than pure testosterone; all testosterone compounds discussed under Andropause can be used here.
  3. Muscle Wasting Diseases – all that was said of burn victims applies to muscle wasting diseases.
  4. Osteoporosis – osteoporosis simply refers to a loss of bone density and bone tissue; fortunately, the effects of steroids can reverse such a condition by promoting increases in bone mineral content and collagen synthesis; lean tissue growth can also have a positive impact. In most cases, Anavar is the most commonly prescribed; however, some physicians are beginning to realize Nandrolone hormones such as Deca-Durabolin are far more effective as increases in bone mineral content and collagen synthesis are a primary trait of this steroid that no other steroid carries at such a level.
  5. Renal Insufficiency – renal insufficiency refers to kidney failure; the kidneys are no longer filtering waste and toxins properly. Part of the problem is the kidneys are supposed to produce erythropoietin which plays a massive role in red blood cell production; those who suffer from renal insufficiency often suffer from anemia, a red blood cell deficiency. Once again, one of the primary effects of steroids is their ability to increase red blood cell count; Nandrolone compounds like Deca-Durabolin are most commonly used for this purpose.
  6. Severe Strength Loss – could be caused by a muscle wasting disease and could be caused by some type of hormonal deficiency; there are truly countless possibilities. In any case, the effects of steroids largely surround strength increases; the most common steroids used for this purpose include Winstrol and Winstrol Depot, but almost any DHT steroid could present a benefit.
  7. Weight Loss – anabolic steroids can be used to treat needed weight loss when obesity is caused by a hormone deficiency; Winstrol and Winstrol Depot are the most common prescribed; however, Anavar can be very useful as well as testosterone if the condition is in-part testosterone based.
