Erectile dysfunction is a risingproblem among males these days. It is a sexual health problem where men wither fail to get or maintain their erections long enough during sexual intercourse for satisfactory lovemaking. ED is not a primary condition and most often men suffer from ED due to a stressed personal life as far as their relationships are concerned or else some psychological cause can be responsible. Erectile dysfunction is a devastatingproblem which creates a mayhem in the lives of men, globally. It commonly affects men who are above 40 years of age and the risk increases with advancing age; however, in this competitive age of stress, ED affects young as well as old men. After dedicated research of over the years, researchers have concluded that the main culprit behind ED among men is the poor flow of blood to their penis and this is one of the major reason behind ED in men. ED can occur due to physical risk factors and underlying conditions which are as follows:

• Heart disease and narrowing of blood vessels.

• Diabetes

• High blood pressure and cholesterol

• Obesity and metabolic syndrome

• Parkinson's disease

• Multiple sclerosis

• Injury or surgery

Sometimes, various medications can also lead to ED as a side-effect like anti-depressants and anti-blood clotting medications.

Various treatment options have been attempted in order to free men of ED. These include muses, penile injections, penile pumps, herbal medicines, and even surgery is done in some cases. However, oral ED medicines are by convention and by far the most popular and widely used treatment option of ED by men, globally. ED medicines become popular with the emergence of Sildenafil citrate launched in the year 1998 for treating ED. Since then, it has become a “gold standard of the treatment for ED”. Many generic and low-cost but high-in-quality versions are available among which Silagra a generic version of Viagra, containing the same active ingredient Sildenafil Citrate has grown in immensely due to its FDA approved, highly result-oriented, safe, effective and cost-effective nature.

After consumption, Silagra 100 releases the content of sildenafil Citrate in the bloodstream where it blocks the action of the enzyme called cGMP specific phosphodiesterase type -5, also called PDE5. This potentiates the levels of endogenous mediators like Nitric oxide which in turn leads to an upsurge of cGMP production in the body. This leads to the dilatation of the penile arteries (the blood vessels carrying blood to the penis), causing an enhanced blood flow to the penis. Hence, result is a stronger and harder erection after consumption of Silagra. It should be noted that this is a prescription medicine and should be taken after receiving a valid prescription of a Registered Medical Practitioner only.So, a visit to a doctor before starting this medicine is recommended.The standard dose of Silagra is 100mg once a day.The starting dose may differdependent on age and medical history.Silagra should be swallowed with a glass full of water without crushing, chewing or breaking.Intake of more than 1 dose in a period of 24 hours is not allowed.The most common side effects of Silagra are:
