Angina

Visit "Heart Disease" to gain a broad understanding of the dietary impact on the heart.

Angina is a condition that produces debilitating chest pain due to restricted blood flow to the arteries of the heart. This reduced blood flow is in part due to a build up of fatty deposits within the walls of the cardiac arteries and may also involve the consequent constriction of arterial blood vessels throughout the body due to lowered carbon dioxide levels arising from hyperventilation.

The damage and narrowing of the blood vessels is explained in the Heart Disease section and information on the effect of hyperventilation on circulation can be seen HERE
