How does Eriacta 100 mg Work

Eriacta 100 mg tablets contain Sildenafil citrate as its active ingredient which obstructs the action of the PDE5 enzyme and increases the production and action of nitric oxide in the penile tissue. When sexually aroused, nitric oxide gets released to activate the enzyme granulated cyclase which leads to elevation of the cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Increased cGMP influences the smooth muscles of the penis to relax and promote the flow of blood into the penis to result in a firm penile erection. Normally, the PDE5 enzyme inhibits the activity of cGMP but Sildenafil present in the Eriacta 100 mg stops the action of the PDE5 enzyme and results in sustained erection of the penis.
