What is INTIMAX-100
INTIMAX-100 also known as Sildenafil Citrate enables many men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to respond to sexual stimulation, but keep in mind INTIMAX-100 is not a hormone or an aphrodisiac, it works only when a man is sexually stimulated.
INTIMAX-100 does not directly cause penile erections, but affects the response to sexual stimulation. The drug acts by enhancing the smooth muscle relaxant effects of nitric oxide, a chemical that is normally released in response to sexual stimulation. This smooth muscle relaxation allows increased blood flow into certain areas of the penis leading to an erection

Drug Class and Mechanism
INTIMAX-100 is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor and it works by helping the blood flow into the penis to achieve and maintain an erection during sexual stimulation.
How INTIMAX-100 Works :
Part of the physiological process of erection involves the release of nitric oxide (NO) in the corpus cavernosum. This then activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase which results in increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), leading to smooth relaxation in the corpus cavernosum, resulting in increased inflow of blood and an erection. Sildenafil Citrate is a potent and selective inhibitor of cGMP specific phosphodiesterase type 5(PDE5) which is responsible for degradation of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum. This means that, with Sildenafil Citrate of Intimax-100 normal sexual stimulation leads to increased levels of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum which leads to better erections. Without sexual stimulation and no activation of the NO/cGMP system, sildenafil citrate should not cause an erection. Sildenafil Citrate is metabolised by hepatic enzymes and excreted by both the liver and kidneys.

It relaxes the arterial wall, leading to decreased pulmonary arterial resistance and pressure. This, in turn, reduces the workload of the right ventricle of the heart and improves symptoms of right-sided heart failure. Because PDE-5 is primarily distributed within the arterial wall smooth muscle of the lungs and penis, Intimax-100 acts selectively in both these areas without inducing vasodilatation in other areas of the body.
