spider venom – Next ViagraYes, spider venom does have the chances to become the next Viagra. Wondering, if this could be true? Well, a new research suggests that spider venom does have the ability to bring intense erections that can last for hours. If a Brazilian Wandering Spider had bit you, you would have known signs of tremors, breathing difficulty or excessive salivation. The venom of these arachnids could cause an unexpected symptom, you would have guessed it right, intense erections. Now scientists around the world are planning to harvest PnTx2-6, which is the active ingredient in the venom of the spider so as to create a natural Viagra which is believed to be able to work in twenty minutes.

Research on spider venom

If research is to be believed, Brazilian Wandering Spiders can cause priapism which is a condition which happens when blood is being trapped in the penis which in turn could lead to long lasting erections, however in an abnormal manner. In order to ascertain how the active component in the venom is able to do this, researchers had to cut the penis of a dead mouse and then had to connect it to an electrical stimulator. They were then able to estimate the contraction of the muscles in the tissue when they came in contact with various chemicals. It was then found out that it’s not only the venom that works but it was also found that it was having very few side effects when it was compared with other existing ED meds like Viagra.

Efficacy of spider venom to act as ED booster

The venom of the spider is a mixture of various molecules and these molecules are known as toxins. There are different toxins in the venom in varied activities. As a result of this, when a human is bitten by a spider, one can notice different symptoms including priapism.

Different tests that were carried out on rats indicated that the venom boosts performance by enhancing the release of nitric oxide which is a chemical that is able to dilate the blood vessels and can improve the flow of blood. After which, researchers were able to infect a caterpillar cell that produced the spider toxin. This newly created artificial venom happened to prove effective and successful on rats. Now, it is possible for scientists to make more venom. Trials may also take place so as to discover the toxicity of the drug in humans.

Outcome of the research

Though it is known that medicines like Levitra, Viagra and Cialis have revolutionized the impotency treatment for almost a decade, almost 30% of the men who take these pills report to have no improvement.  For such men, the alternative option would be to inject drugs into penis or to use a pump manually to increase the blood flow towards the penis and that we know neither of these is actually possible. Therefore the only alternative option would be to have a drug that is made of spider venom.
