Viagra 'increases lifespan' by an overwhelming percentage in bombshell new report


Viagra could help prolong more than just your erection, according to Swiss and French researchers.

A recent study shows that the popular erectile dysfunction pill may have a “beneficial effect on lifespan.”

Men taking the drug were 15 percent less likely to die during the course of a study led by Swiss start-up EPITERNA.

They looked at 40 years of medical records from about 500,000 British men and women, though only the men were counted when considering sildenafil — the generic name for Viagra.

Viagra was developed by Pfizer and approved in 1998. There were about 3.6 million prescriptions for the drug in 2021, according to ClinCalc.

Some of the 400 drugs studied were found to have a negative effect on lifespan.

These include the antibiotic amoxicillin, the cholesterol medication simvastatin, and morphine, which carried a 456 percent heightened risk of death.

This is “probably due to the underlying negative effect of the disease the drug is intended for,” researchers say.

Older men are not the only ones seeing the purported benefits of Viagra as an increasing amount of younger men are taking the drug for “performance anxiety” and other issues.
