Valif Oral Jelly 20mg is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men, which is inability to achieve or maintain a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity, due to insufficient blood flow into the penis. Valif Oral Jelly 20mg helps relax the blood vessels in the penis increasing blood flow and causing an erection, which is the natural response to sexual stimulation. However, Valif Oral Jelly 20mg will only work if you are sexually aroused. Valif Oral Jelly 20mg helps treat erectile dysfunction in men with health problems, such as diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.
How does Valif Oral Jelly work?
Valif Oral Jelly 20mg contains vardenafil, a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor that acts directly on the erectile tissue of the penis, increasing blood flow to cause an erection. During sexual stimulation nitric oxide is released in the erectile tissue of the penis which activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase. This enzyme increases levels of a chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which relaxes the blood vessels in the penis and allows blood to fill the spongy erectile tissues to cause an erection. Another enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) breaks down cGMP preventing blood flow into the penis, which causes loss of an erection. Vardenafil in Valif Oral Jelly 20mg inhibits the action of PDE5 which resolves erectile dysfunction by allowing the natural process of sexual stimulation to activate the cGMP mechanism for achieving and maintaining an erection. Valif Oral Jelly 20mg is more concentrated and absorbs faster into the blood stream; it therefore, works more rapidly than in tablet form, being effective within 15 minutes of consumption.
