 Viagra Could Help Burn Calories

In men, intake of anti-impotence pill Viagra could help lose weight, say researchers.

White fat cells store calories and deposit them around the stomach while the beige variety burns food calories.


Experts gave daily doses of Viagra to mice and saw that the little animal gained little weight, the Sun reported.

Prof Alexander Pfeifer said that the drug was not only able to minimise erectile problems but can also reduce the risks of gaining excessive weight.
