How does Stimu-Max work?
Sildenafil widens the blood vessels in your penis. This lets more blood flow into
The blood fills the spaces in your penis, making it firmer. This is how it
When you have sexual thoughts, or your penis is being touched, nerves send a
signal to your penis to trigger an erection.
The nerves release a chemical called nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide travels to the blood vessels and spongy tissue in your penis.
Nitric oxide makes these parts of your penis start to make another chemical,
called cyclic GMP.
Cyclic GMP makes the blood vessels wider, so more blood flows into your penis.
Spaces in the spongy tissue open up and fill with blood, making your penis firm.
Cyclic GMP is destroyed (usually after sex is over) by an enzyme called
phosphodiesterase type 5.
Sildenafil stops phosphodiesterase type 5 working, so cyclic GMP stays around.
This keeps your erection firm for longer.
