Viagra improves brain function

At Harvard Medical School and the University of Cambridge, scientists have discovered an unexpected positive effect of Viagra.

Experts have found that the drug to combat erectile dysfunction improves brain function.

Viagra is a powerful inhibitor of the PDE5 enzyme, which allows the body to effectively deal with damaged proteins. Toxic misfolded proteins cause neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Scientists have experimentally confirmed the effectiveness of Viagra in the fight against “broken” proteins. Experts have tested the effect of the drug on zebrafish, in which the mechanism of protein accumulation has been genetically changed.

At the same time, scientists emphasize that Viagra is not a cure for Alzheimer’s, but their discovery may help in the search for an effective means of combating such diseases.
