Get To Know About Levitra’s Active Ingredient Vardenafil

Erectile Dysfunction or ED is a condition where a male is unable to get and maintain a firm erection for enjoying an intimate session. Continuous ED situations can cause stress, hamper self-confidence, and trigger relationship issues. ED is a sign of some underlying health issue that needs treatment. Never hesitate to visit your doctor, who may prescribe Levitra.

How does the active ingredient Vardenafil work?

It is a drug comprising of an active substance called Vardenafil. Vardenafil belongs to a medicine group called Phosphodiesterase-type 5 or PDE5 inhibitors. The inhibitor blocks the Phosphodiesterase enzyme responsible to break down cGMP [cyclic guanosine monophosphate] substance. 

Male sexual arousal involves hormones, brains, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and emotions. cGMP is released to relax the spongy tissue muscle within your penis, during sexual arousal. Relaxation allows blood to fill in the corpora causing a firm erection of the penis. When cGMP function is damaged by the PDE5 inhibitors erections may not occur or may not be firm enough for sexual satisfaction. Vardenafil actively blocks cGMP destruction and restores erectile function. However, you will need sexual arousal to get an erection.

The sexual enhancer drug is safe and you can order it from an online pharmacy without the need for a prescription. 

Recommended sexual enhancer dosage

The dosage recommended is 10 mg to be taken orally 30 to 50 minutes before the sexual session. The pills are available as orodispersible tablets or film-coated tablets. The orodispersible pills will dissolve in your mouth, so you must take them without water. Take the film-coated tablet must never be consumed with high-fat meals because the onset of the effect will get delayed.
