The Three Components Of TriMix
Papaverine acts as a vasodilator, which relaxes the smooth muscle walls of blood vessels within the penis. This leads to vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels, which enables a greater volume of blood to flow into the erectile tissues of the penis. This increased blood flow is crucial for achieving and maintaining an erection.
Phentolamine is an alpha-blocker. It works by inhibiting the action of alpha-adrenergic receptors, which are responsible for causing the constriction (narrowing) of arteries. By blocking these receptors, Phentolamine prevents the arteries in the penis from constricting. As a result, the arteries remain dilated (widened), ensuring blood flows freely into the penis.
Alprostadil is a synthetic form of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), a naturally occurring substance in the body. When applied to the erectile tissues, Alprostadil binds to specific receptors on smooth muscle cells in the blood vessel walls. This results in the relaxation of the smooth muscle, allowing the arteries in the penis to widen, which allows more blood to flow into the penis.
