Scientists Discover A Surprising Aid To Weight Loss - VIAGRA!

A scientific study of Viagra treatment has made a remarkable discovery! In addition to its use for treating erectile dysfunction, the drug also has a positive effect on fat stores. It converts undesirable white adipose (fat) tissue into healthier brown adipose tissue which is more readily utilised as energy during activity and produces a thermogenic effect which aids fat burn of existing white adipose tissue.

The potential to use sildenafil (Viagra) as an aid to weight loss is looking positive so far. It was also found that the drug has an anti-inflammatory effect which reduces the risk of developing chronic disease in overweight and obese individuals.

It may be a long time until we see this drug on the weight loss market though. I can certainly think of a few issues which may arise...
