A angina attack is felt as a tight band of discomfort and soreness around the chest, generally caused by the narrowing of the arteries into the center, a blockage of a heart artery or thickening of the heart muscles. The pain is a result of the heart demanding an increase in its own blood supply and the flooding of the extra blood through these lean arteries results in the pain and the discomfort. This heart problem is relatively common and over 5 million individuals in the united states have angina and therefore are proven to suffer from at least one of the indicators of this cardiovascular disease.

1) Supply and demand – the differences experienced between these two – the demand from the center is normal but the actual supply is decreased because of the narrowing or OCVD [obstructive coronary vascular disease] of the arteries that supply the heart.
2) Deposits of unhealthy fat in or on the blood vessels of the heart cause the restriction of blood circulation through to the heart, thus reducing the flow of the normal quantity of blood needed by this organ.
3) Blood clots inside the arteries or veins may also present a restriction from the blood circulation.
