Cenforce D 160mg (Sildenafil & Dapoxetine)Centurion Laboratories Ltd.
Cenforce D contains two active ingredients, 100mg Sildenafil Citrate and 60mg
Dapoxetine. This drug then helps with two sexual problems of men -
erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
This drug combination helps men attain and keep erections until the climax of the sexual intercourse. Sildenafil Citrate helps men get and maintain erections while Dapoxetine lengthens time before ejaculation occurs.
Sildenafil Citrate is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction which prevents the action of the enzyme PDE5 to increase levels of cGMP, thus increasing blood flow to the penis and cause an erection.
Dapoxetine on the other hand is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) which is actually an antidepressant that is effective in premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is characterized by an ejaculation that occurs before, on, or shortly after penetration even with minimal sexual stimulation. It works by increasing serotonin levels in the blood thereby increasing serotonin activity in the nervous system to delay ejaculation reflex. This drug has also been found to reduce personal distress associated with premature ejaculation.
This effective combination will provide harder and longer erection throughout the entire sexual intercourse thus improving sexual health of men.
