NICE: Study Shows Viagra Reduces Alzheimer’s Risk By 69%

Tell your grampa that keeping that boner working will also keep his brain working. Honestly, I wouldn’t have written this story if it wasn’t for the 69% … but, either way, it’s valuable information.

Experts have analyzed data on 7.2 million adults and found regular users of the little blue pill had a 69% lower chance of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s over the next six years. Apparently, the drug helps boost brain health and cuts levels of a toxic protein that triggers dementia.

Dr. Feixiong Cheng, the lead researcher from Cleveland Clinic’s Genomic Medicine Institute, said: “Sildenafil, which has been shown to significantly improve cognition and memory in preclinical models, presented as the best drug candidate.

“Sildenafil may have neuroprotective effects and reduce levels of toxic tau proteins.” 

Other medical experts weighed in with the New York Post about the story.

Dr. Jack Auty, lecturer in the medical sciences at the University of Tasmania, said that this was all…. exciting… stuff.

“We need further research,” he said. “In the field of Alzheimer’s disease research, we have been excited by many drugs over the years, only to have our hopes dashed in clinical trials.”

Dr. Catherine Hall, a senior lecturer in psychology at Sussex University, added that sildenafil could boost brain power by improving blood flow, which, of course it does… look at those … results.

“Sildenafil treatment is an exciting prospect for prevention of Alzheimer’s, but it is not clear how to best move on from this research.

“Is it feasible to treat everyone with sildenafil for years before they are likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, or would this cause more problems than it solves.”

Anyways, you me and most everyone reading this post organically have no need for the boner pill… but your dad might and grandpa definitely does. So read more, and make sure to tell them to get to their doctor.
