What is nitric oxide, and what is its role in male potency?
There are nearly 50 trillion cells in our body, and for the cell-to-cell interaction, and signal transmission, nitric oxide is crucial. This signal transmission throughout our body is possible only through the presence of nitric oxide. Apart from the signal transmission, nitric oxide is said to increase the blood flow to the genitals, during the sexual activity. Higher is the nitric oxide level; greater is the blood flow. In erectile dysfunction cases, nitric oxide levels will be very low; thus, even the blood flow will be restricted. For low NO (nitric oxide) levels, you should use male enhancement pills. Some of the ingredients in these male enhancement pills are said to increase the NO levels, which will eventually lead to the increased blood flow to the genitals. In the case of VigRX Plus, Epimedium leaf extract, and Asian Red Ginseng are said to increase the nitric oxide levels in the body, when consumed.

Nitric oxide is synthesized and released by the endothelial cells of corpora cavernosum of the gonads. NO is said to activate guanylyl cyclase, which in turn increases the cGMP (cyclic Guanosine monophosphate) levels. cGMP acts as secondary messenger molecule, which activates the calcium channels and various other intermediate proteins, which are important for dilating the blood vessels and causing the smooth muscles relaxation. This dilation of blood vessels will increase the blood flow rate to the genitals. When this pathway is impaired, it will lead to sexual dysfunction.
As said earlier, a number of erection pills are available in the market today, that trigger the synthesis of nitric oxide in the body. But, you must make sure that the erection pills what you are using, has natural ingredients in it. Herbal extract based- pills are known to give faster and reliable results when compared to the synthetic pills.
