Physiological mechanism of penile erection involves release of nitric oxide (N0) in the cavernous body during sexual stimulation. Nitric oxide activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase, which leads to increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).
Cyclic GMP interacts with specific proteins of the smooth mucles and causes them to relax. Cyclic GMP is inactivated under the action of PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5). Sildenafil soft is a powerfull inhibitor of PDE5 causing increase of cyclic GMP levels and thus increases blood inflow to penis and prevent its outflow causing strong and lasting erection.
