The result is usually visible in ten to twenty minutes after the injection and the erection can last for up to an hour.

However, how will that help prevent impotence?
Impotence is caused by various kidney and heart diseases and they can easily be avoided or managed by adopting balanced diet. As a secondary effect, better diet will reduce the anxiety and the stress levels and thus reduce the chance of experiencing erectile problems.

What most men don’t realize is that they don’t have to purchase super-expensive equipment or join a gym, which can be time-consuming.
