Can Viagra help you live longer?

Not only does Viagra promote good sex in aging Romeo’s, it might also help them live longer.

In men treated for heart attack and prescribed erection-promoting drugs like Viagara. Annual death rate decreased by 33 percent. Hospitalization for heart failure decreased by 40 percent. According to a study led at Department of Medicine at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

The study involved more than 43,000 older men. Erection pills enhance the health of the cells lining the blood vessels by increasing levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide, an important chemical regulating blood flow.  They prevent the breakdown of an enzyme (PDE5) that speeds up nitric oxide disposal.

This study showed drugs like Viagra improve blood vessel health. Also, prescribed safely to heart patients. It’s possible these drugs may increase longevity in people who have not had heart attacks.
