Most of us know that the heart acts like a pumping device taking in the impure blood, oxidizing it and thus purifying it, and sending it back to all the remaining organs of the body for proper functioning. Whenever there is even a small obstacle in this process, it leads to the reduced blood supply to the heart muscle. This condition is known as “Ischemia” This usually occurs due to the problems or blockages in the coronary artery of the heart. This may appear with age or even some unhygienic habits like smoking and alcohol consumption. These symptoms are mostly seen in men and can also be a hereditary problem in some cases.
