The benefits of long term use of Cialis

Cialis (tadalafil) is powerful. What makes Cialis unique among the erectile dysfunction drugs is its long half-life. Thirty-six hours after taking Cialis, a guy will still have about a quarter of what he took circulating in his bloodstream. This means that guys can take this every other day and get themselves back in shape almost full time. Plus, many guys like the fact that they don’t have to anticipate their love-making sessions – who can predict a woman, eh?

However, it turns out the benefits of long term, steady use of Cialis extends way beyond just simple bedroom convenience. (For some of the scary issues with long term Cialis use, see my link on The Dangers of Cialis for more information.)

Below are listed 9 Long Term Cialis Benefits. Again, keep in mind that Cialis and other PDE5 Inhibitors affect other PDE enzyme systems, which explains the frequent stomach, vision, head and hearing issues, something you can read about in my link on Issues with PDE5i The Benefits of Long Term Cialis Use

1. Blood Flow Increases.  Cialis increases blood flow – that’s what erections are all about, eh? – but this can have important health benefits throughout the body as lack of circulation can effect many tissues including those in the brain. One four-week study of males (average age of 54) found that Cialis use induced profound and highly desireable cardiovascular and endothelial changes, including increases in the all-important FMD (Flow Mediated Dilation).

2. Restoration of Normal Erectile Dysfunction. One study showed that about 40% of men with E.D. were actually completely “healed” through daily Cialis use.

3. Inflammation Reduction. Researchers also noted a “robust”, i.e. very significant drop in both C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule (VCAM) counts. This is important because plaque buildup in the arteries is largely due to an inflammatory process where leukocytes (white blood cells) adhere to and “attack” arterial walls.

Cialis attacks this plaque-building process in several ways, lowering both CRP, the systemic (body-wide) inflammation marker that is so intimately correlated with arterioscloerosis, and VCAM, which is a protein that helps white blood cells adhere to arterial walls and causes plaque buildup. In other words, Cialis usage seems to directly improve two important markers of cardiovascular disease. So users may get both short term benefits in the bedroom and long term health results to go with it, although that has not been proven.

4. Testosterone and the T/E Ratio. Don’t forget that long term Cialis use has been shown to significantly improve the all-important testosterone to estrogen ratio by an average of 24%. A one year study of males with an average age of 54 showed an increase in testosterone of 5.5% and a decrease in estrogen of 15%. These are significant numbers and show the power of getting “back in the sack”. Remember that the 24% increase means you have significantly more testosterone molecules floating around versus estrogen, almost always a good thing for us guys.

5. High Blood Pressure and Hypertension. Cialis has also been shown to lower high blood pressure. Although it does not dramatically lower blood pressure, it will help most guys struggling with hypertension.

6. Improved Relationships. One study found that, for guys with erectile dysfunction, a significant percentage had improved partner relationships after taking Cialis, suggesting, of course, that sex really does matter.

7. The Benefits of Sex. In my link on How Sex Is Good For You, I document many benefits of making love. Cialis likely increases many, if not all, of these benefits. By the way, Viagra has many studies showing that it decreases the refractory period. This is the time post-ejaculation that it takes for guys to recover before they can become erect. Cialis likely has this same benefit.

8. Antidepressant Action. In some Cialis may actually act as an antidepressant as sexual confidence increases.

9. Reduce Enlarged Prostate. Many urologists will give Cialis to improve enlarged prostate symptoms. In fact, it is one of the few pharmaceutical solutions that have a good track record and is now FDA approved for such use.
