10 amusing facts about Viagra

Generika Viagra is a known remedy for erectile dysfunction.
However, very few people know that this famous drug has other, no less important spheres of usage, and for two decades of its sales a lot of interesting, sometimes comical facts have accumulated.
1. Hard currency
During the American invasion of Afghanistan, CIA agents rewarded their informants with blue tablets, thanks to which elderly warriors could satisfy their wives. Apparently, the Afghans were not against receiving them instead of cash.
2. For business trips
It’s not about what you thought. Scientists have found that Viagra helps to adapt to the sudden change of time zones after air travel, and it works only for flights to the east. To say the truth, these strange facts were not rechecked.
3. Love is not blind
Some people still believe that Viagra increases sexual desire, but it is not. Its mechanism is completely different: it simply contributes to the expansion of the vessels of the penis and the blood filling of the organ, providing a persistent and prolonged erection.
4. Diabetes is the hindrance of love
In general, it is considered that Viagra helps to restore the erectile function in 80% of men, but among patients who suffer from diabetes, this figure is only 60%.
5. Viagra against cancer
Although the studies are still in the early stages, American scientists made preliminary conclusions that Viagra can be used in some types of cancer (in particular, in prostate, stomach and ovarian cancer). However, there is also a dark side: recently it was proved that Viagra stimulates the growth of melanoma cells.
6. Saving Tigers
In China, it is believed that tiger bones treat erectile dysfunction, so many well-off customers are ready to pay for tinctures and drugs from a rare beast. The appearance of Viagra on the market markedly reduced the demand for these barbaric means, thereby saving the disappearing population of striped beautiful animals.
7. It helps shy panda
Panda is not too eagerly multiply in captivity. But after a tablet of Viagra, animals are transformed and begin to actively mate. So, tell me that it does not increase the libido.
8. Beware of a heart attack
Viagra does not cause a heart attack, but it should be remembered that in elderly men with a weak heart, stress due to unusually intense sexual activity is a big risk. So, do not forget to talk to your doctor beforehand.
9. Heals the heart
In certain doses and according to special schemes, Viagra can treat congestive heart failure and other heart diseases. This drug dilates the blood vessels, reducing their resistance and helping to pump blood through the lungs and other organs.
10. For sports achievements
Sportsmen can do everything for the sake of victory – from diuretics and electrolytes to growth hormone and anabolic agents. It turns out that Viagra also finds application in improving sports results.
