Having your heart broken is one of the most painful experiences one can go through, arguably much worse then getting a punch to the face. Heartache can last a lifetime, while a physical blow lasts only a little. To your brain and body, however, the two types of pain, emotional and physical, really aren't very different.
Through cartoons and simple images, ASAP Science has made a lighthearted and very informative video explaining the link between emotions, bran functions, and physical reactions, and most importantly, how to truly help someone with a broken heart.
