Is viagra good for bodybuilders ?

In 1986 the researchers found that nitric oxide is a powerful vasodilator and can improve circulation, heart health and anything based on optimal blood flow!

Researchers at Pfizer began testing drugs called PED-5 inhibitors that improved and perpetuated the vasodilating effects of nitric oxide. Their purpose was to find a cure for angina. First, there was a substance called sildenafil citrate, but it had modest treatment effects.

Some researchers have looked more closely at the side effects of this drug and found that most of the subjects that were tested were visited more often by the ”erection fairy”! Founding out this, the researchers at Pfizer had erections themselves and was caused by the thought of future money from such a drug. So sildenafil citrate started to be researched as a medicine for erectile dysfunction. It was successful and in 1996 they patented it as Viagra.

Few drugs have had such a huge impact on society. Older people, and younger ones, could take part in activities they thought were lost. But young people also tried this substance, as they did with other similar chemicals that came later, Cialis and Levitra.

Young people use Viagra in particular as a protection against anxiety before intercourse and because it reduces the time between sexual episodes. But it seems that there are other reasons to use Viagra as a man! And they are related to bodybuilding!

What do erectile dysfunction drugs for bodybuilders do?

✪ PDE-5 inhibitors increase pumping
The most basic effect of Viagra is to increase blood flow, not only to the heart and penis, but to all parts of the body, including muscles. More blood flow means better pumping from weight exercises and more nutrients to your muscles, which is a good thing!

✪ PDE-5 inhibitors lower estrogen levels
A 2005 study found that 10 and 20 mg doses of Cialis, taken 10 times a month, significantly reduced estrogen, but only for men who were low fat. Those with higher fat levels also have higher levels of aromatase, the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen, no matter how much Cialis is taken.

✪ PDE-5 inhibitors increase testosterone levels
A study of the effects of Viagra on 140 men with low testosterone levels, aged between 40 and 70 found that the drug increased testosterone levels. Part of the increase in testosterone was due to the lower conversion to estrogen, another part came from the direct increase in testosterone production.

✪ PDE-5 inhibitors increase insulin sensitivity
Viagra reduces the oxidative stress induced by diabetes and improves insulin sensitivity. This study was performed on rats, but they are likely to have the same effects in humans.

 

What do erectile dysfunction drugs do for general health?

Cialis smothers the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy, such as frequent urination. It is possible that these drugs will improve the overall health of the prostate.

Viagra treats excessively high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries.

✪ Despite the initial studies that did not find great effects, PDE-5 still appears to be beneficial in treating angina, along with high blood pressure and other cardiovascular conditions.

 

How to use this information

Sporadic use of this medicine (less than 8-10 times a week) does not have beneficial effects. But Cialis is approved for use once a day, so those who do so probably have other health benefits.

Maybe in the future, through more research, Viagra and other similar drugs will be recommended, and for other benefits, not just for erections.
