Sildenafil citrate is a salt that is used in both branded and generic ED medicines. The branded one is Viagra – the medication firstly approved by FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Generic versions of viagra include Cenforce and Fildena that are as effective as the original branded medication. In this blog, we will discuss how Cenforce 100 works to cure erection problems in men along with its appropriate way of administration.
What is Cenforce 100?
Cenforce 100 or sildenafil 100 is an effective generic version of viagra that most doctors widely prescribe all over the world. It contains 100 milligrams of sildenafil citrate, which works by increasing the flow of blood in the penile region. Cenforce belongs to the class of PDE-5 inhibitors, which stops the action of PDE-5 enzymes in the body to enhance blood supply in the male reproductive region and induce stiffer and more robust erections. It boosts self-confidence and self-esteem in men, which have long been lost due to their inability to satisfy their partners sexually.

How Does Cenforce 100 Work?
When men take sildenafil 100, their rigid muscles gradually dilate and allow more blood flow. The same mechanism goes with high blood pressure medications, which explains the narrowed down muscles and improves the blood flow throughout the body. When you take one tablet of Cenforce 100 at least thirty minutes before having sexual intercourse, you will be able to get and maintain erections for long enough for a pleasant sexual drive.
An erection occurs through a complex chain of events, involving signals from the nervous system and the liberation of chemical messengers within the tissues of the penis. One of the chemical messengers released when you are sexually aroused is called cyclic GMP. It relaxes and expands the blood vessels of the penis, allowing more blood to get in. It causes the penis to become firm and erect.
Cyclic GMP is usually broken down by an enzyme in the body known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). Sildenafil 100 works by halting this enzyme from decomposing the cyclic GMP. This enables the blood vessels in the penis to stay inflated for longer, enhancing the blood flow to the penis and helping achieve and maintain an erection.
How Long Does The Effects Of Sildenafil 100 Last?
After taking a dose of sildenafil 100, you will be able to get an erection for about 4-5 hours. Sildenafil 100 will only work once the messengers that are accountable for inducing an erection start to be generated. This implies that you have to be sexually aroused for the drug to achieve and maintain an erection.
