Cialis for curing BPH – principle of action and user’s’ reviews.

In 2011, US FDA permitted Cialis anti-ED medicament to be applied for curing benign prostatic hyperplasia (abbreviated as BPH). Therefore, since 2011, the medicament has been officially used to cure BPH only or to cure this ailment alongside ED.

What is BPH?

BPH is probably a normal part of aging in male persons. The active growth of the prostate gland tissue is caused by changes in the hormonal balance – androgen and cellular growth factors. Genetic predisposition may also play a significant role in this process. Male persons over 50 have an increasing risk of the development of this ailment.

The prostate gland grows with the age of a male person, then it stops growing and after 30 it begins to grow again. Its overgrowth is observed in 5 out of 10 male persons who have reached the age of 50, and by the age of 80, this indicator increases to 8 out of 10. The ailment doesn’t always cause disturbing symptoms. Why do some people have more severe symptoms than others? The exact answer to this question is unknown.

In the case of the prostate overgrowth, urethra ( the vascular tube which allows urine to be excreted from the body) is narrowed or blocked. The narrowing or blocking of the urethra leads to particular symptoms of the ailment. Among them are:
1) weak, intermittent flow of urine;
2) frequent urination acts (especially in the night time);
3) lack of complete bladder emptying.

BPH doesn’t directly cause impotence, but there is some connection between the severe symptoms of this ailment and increasing the risk of penile erection problems. As stated on cialis.com website, impotence & BPH are 2 health problems that often coexist.

How does the medicament work for the ailment?

Cialis has a positive effect in curing impotence by inhibiting the PDE5 enzyme and enlarging the level of cGMP in the penis tissue. cGMP enlarges blood current in men’s organ, therefore erection emerges. In addition, this substance relaxes the bladder & prostate muscles. Perhaps this is the reason of the medicament capability to reduce prostate overgrowth symptoms’ severity.

According to the placebo-controlled studies, male persons suffering from the ailment who took five milligrams of tadalafil 1 time per day, noticed a substantial reduction of symptoms.
