What Does Synodrin® do to your Glandular and Circulatory System? February 28 2017

We thought that was a great question and want to do an in-depth look at our ingredients and how they affect you. So warning, this will be a long article. The quick answer is that no, Synodrin shouldn't adversely affect your glands or circulation. We always advise speaking with your doctor if you have specific concerns. 

5 Things You Didn't Know About Joint Pain and Weather January 19 2017

Joint pain and weather


When grandma said she could feel a storm brewing in her joints, she likely could.

The weight of the air pressing against the surface of the earth can trigger joint pain or headaches in some people. Barometric pressure, as well as changes in humidity and temperature, can affect your joints. Make sure when the weather changes that you recognize this and do some stretches, use joint supplements and gels, and if needed, apply a heating pad to alleviate discomfort. 

Moving to a milder climate may not help your joint pain

According to, studies show that those who live in milder climates actually report great sensitivity to changes in the weather. 

"We know that if you ask people to rate their pain in Minnesota or Arizona or California or even Florida, there's no one area of the country where you'd say, ‘There's less pain there.'"

Doctors theorize that when people vacation they are not doing their normal every day activities, and their pain lessens. When they resume normal activity, even in a warmer climate, the pain comes back. 

Drinking water can help with your joint pain

Most people think that cold affects joint pain, and it does. However, in the warmer seasons it is easy to become dehydrated, and even mild dehydration can affect joint pain according to a medical study done in 2015. No matter the season, it's a good idea to increase your water intake when you're experience increased joint pain. It may lessen the pain for you. 

High heat and humidity can be as painful as cold weather.

“High heat and humidity also can exacerbate the levels of ozone in the environment, possibly causing additional distress and pain in those who have asthma, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome,” said Moshe Lewis, MD, a pain management specialist in private practice in Redwood City, Calif. (source)

In addition to drinking water, you can stay indoors and do water fitness exercises to keep your cool. Exercise will relieve your pain, but the low impact of water exercise can relieve joint pressure while keeping your body at a lower temperature. 

Glucosamine benefits everyone with arthritis when the weather changes.

Glucosamine has been shown to benefit people with osteoarthritis, possibly by stimulating the regrowth of worn-out cartilage. Just glucosamine alone is not enough.  That's why we at Synodrin® have developed products that combine the effects of other natural ingredients to help you fight pain. Yes, taking a supplement can help increase joint comfort; taking a high quality supplement that's right for your body and your condition is the key to effective relief. 

Our tips for you: stay warm when it is cold; stay cool when it is warm. Drink water. Get some support from your doctor to come up with a weather-change pain management plan. Research and learn more about the options available to support your joint health. Don't assume that what works for others will work for you. We recommend choosing a comprehensive, high quality joint health supplement. You don't need to move to Florida to feel better. We hope this article has helped you. If you have questions about joint health supplements, just ask us on Facebook. Someone with an obsessive level of caring about customer support will get back to you. 

Young Adults and RA - "But you don't look sick" August 25 2016

Young people everywhere have the same mentality that health issues are something that they won’t have to worry about for years to come. Many diseases can affect the young, and one of the most unexpected of those diseases is rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The truth is that 1.3 million Americans with rheumatoid arthritis are young adults from 18 to 40. 

Young Women are more likely than Young Men to develop RA

The Mayo Clinic reports that  1 in 400 to 1 in 500 women in their 20s and probably closer to 1 in 1,000 or less in men [in their 20s]. The peak age of onset is in the mid-50s. The disorder inflames and then destroys up the lining of their joints and silently ravages their eyes and scars their lungs. It can also result in damage to the heart. However many young people are in denial about their condition. 

"But you don't look sick"

An RA diagnosis at a young age can be difficult to swallow, resulting in a delay in pursuing treatment. You might think of your grandmother's gnarled hands and be afraid. You might go into denial or avoidance. You might think the pain isn't important or minimize your symptoms before they become acute. 

At Synodrin, we are passionate about helping to alleviate the effects of this chronic condition. We also hope to work with those afflicted with RA and raise awareness about RA in general. One of the things we hear RA patients, especially young people with Rheumatoid Arthritis, say so often is that people tell them, "You don't look sick." This leads to young people diagnosed with RA to feel unheard, and to feel as if their pain isn't important. 

The younger you are when diagnosed, the more at risk you are for damage to your body from the disease. Because RA causes joint pain, it can make it a lot more difficult to stay active, which can cause you to gain weight, and leave you at a higher risk for other diseases, like Diabetes or heart disease.  Treating your pain matters more than you know. 

At Synodrin, we want to help. Synodrin is one of the best joint relief supplements on the market, and it can provide you with the pain relief that you need to remain active and experience the highest quality of life possible. We do this by packing high quality ingredients into our products, with no additives or fillers. Our all-natural ingredients work to fight inflammation and to rebuild, strengthen and lubricate joints. Our supplements can be taken in tandem with prescription medications.

Although many young people don't think they are at risk for the health issues of older adults, they need to be aware of their possible risk for RA and seek treatment if they experience symptoms. If you are diagnosed with RA at a young age, it doesn’t mean that your life is over. You can find the pain relief that you need to get your life back with the help of Synodrin. Find out if Synodrin is right for you by talking to your doctor about it today. Try a sample for yourself. Have questions or concerns about our joint support supplements? Feel free to give us a call. Most of all, don't minimize your pain. Take action today.

Rheumatoid Arthritis in Young People February 10 2015

More and more young people are diagnosed with RA all the time, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that RA is more prevalent than it used to be, it just means that we are getting better at recognizing the signs. The quicker you are diagnosed, the sooner you will be able to start treatment, but how do you know if you have RA? The following is our list of warning signs of RA in young people:

  • Diminished range of motion.
  • Swelling or tenderness in the joints.
  • Pain in the muscles.
  • A low-grade fever and other flu-like symptoms.
  • Pain or stiffness after long periods of immobility, commonly in the morning.
  • Lumps of tissue, often called rheumatoid nodules, under the skin.
  • Weight loss, a loss of appetite, anemia, or depression.
  • Sweaty and/or cold feet and hands.

RA can affect even the most athletic people or people who are otherwise in excellent health, so don’t put off being tested. Keep in mind that certain things can put you at a higher risk for getting RA, like smoking and genetics.

When to go to your doctor

Doctors don’t want us to call for every little ache and pain. But Arthritis experts recommend that you see a doctor if you have pain in your joints AND:

  • The pain isn’t connected to an injury, or lasts for longer than a week.
  • Your joint is swollen, but hasn’t been injured.
  • You also feel unwell or have a high temperature.
  • Joint or muscle pain is stopping you from carrying out your everyday tasks.
  • Your back hurts after lifting something heavy and painkillers and heat hasn’t helped after a day or so.
  • You get swelling, stiffness, a tightness, or a painful “squeeze” in your joints.

What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?

No one knows for sure why the immune system goes awry, but there is evidence that hormonal, genetic and environmental factors are involved. The cause of RA is not yet fully understood, but an abnormal response of the immune system plays a leading role in the inflammation and joint damage that occurs. 

Research has shown that people with a specific genetic marker called the HLA shared epitope, which controls immune responses, have five times the chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis than do people without the marker.  STAT4, a gene that plays important roles in the regulation and activation of the immune system; TRAF1 and C5, two genes relevant to chronic inflammation; and PTPN22, a gene associated with both the development and progression of rheumatoid arthritis all appear to have a connection to rheumatoid arthritis. Not all people with the condition have these genes. The condition does not appear in all of those who have these markers. The research continues to find the reasons why. 

Other factors may play a role including infectious agents such as bacteria or viruses. Researchers are investigating whether or not these agents act as triggers in the development of the disease in a person with at-risk genetic markers. 70 percent of people with RA are women, so the link between female hormones and RA is being explored.  Environmental factors like exposure to cigarette smoke, air pollution, insecticides and occupational exposures to mineral oil and silica are also being explored.


Anti-inflammatory Diet and Healthy Eating

While there is no specific “diet” for RA, researchers recommend foods rich in antioxidants and to eliminate or significantly reduce processed and fast foods that fuel inflammation.  Many recommended foods are part of the "Mediterranean diet" which emphasizes fish, vegetables, fruits and olive oil, among other healthy foods. 

Rest When you Flare Up

Rest helps reduce inflammation and fatigue that can come with a flare. Taking breaks throughout the day conserves energy and protects joints. Rest is important when joints feel painful, swollen or stiff.

Exercise is Part of Treatment

A main part of RA treatment is exercise. The exercise program should emphasize low-impact aerobics, muscle strengthening and flexibility. A physical therapist can help to design an exercise program. The program should be tailored to fitness level and capabilities, and take into account any joint damage that exists.

Topical Treatments

These treatments are applied directly to the skin over the painful muscle or joint. They may be creams or patches. Different types of topical treatments may contain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), capsaicin or salicylates, which help reduce pain. The Synodrin® topical gel contains menthol, Immunodrin®, hyaluronic acid, aloe and vitamin E. It is safe to use along with other topical treatments.

Alternative Therapies

Prayer, meditation, deep breathing, guided imagery and visualization can help train painful muscles to relax. Massage can help reduce arthritis pain, improve joint function and ease stress and anxiety. Acupuncture and acupressure may also be helpful. 


Studies have shown that turmeric and omega-3 fish oil supplements may help with rheumatoid arthritis pain and morning stiffness. In addition, there are numerous studies linking the ingredients in Synodrin to joint relief and joint health. We not only have turmeric, but the cetyl myristoleate blend that we use called Immunodrin® along with hyaluronic acid and glucosamine make our product a multidimensional tool to help you fight against pain. Our products also differ in that we use the highest quality ingredients at an optimum dosage. Our blend is the most powerful effective blend we could create. Talk with a doctor before taking any supplement to discuss side effects and potential interactions, however in over 30 or more years of use, our ingredients have not had any negative side effects or interactions .

5 Exercises That Can Ease Joint Pain December 23 2014

Exercising regularly while taking a joint support supplement, is a winning combination that can help to ease your pain. Having a more active lifestyle in general can make a big difference, but there are some types of exercise that can yield bigger results when it comes to joint pain. The following is a list of the top 5 exercises that can ease joint pain:


1.    Yoga- A study conducted by Johns Hopkins University found that rheumatoid arthritis patients that practiced yoga, had fewer instances of swollen or tender joints than the patients who didn’t practice yoga. 

2.    Water-based exercises- Exercising in water, such as swimming or water aerobics, not only helps to improve tenderness and range of motion in your joints, but it can also improve your well-being as a whole!

3.    Tai Chi- Practicing Tai Chi has been shown to improve the way that your muscles function around your joints, along with reducing pain and stiffness. There are even Tai Chi exercises out there that are specifically designed for people with arthritis.

4.    Cycling-  Riding a bicycle is a great, low-impact way to get your heart pumping. Biking is not only great for your cardiovascular health, but it can reduce joint stiffness and slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis.

5.    Walking- Walking is so easy, and it is great for your joints and your health a whole. Walking helps to loosen up the joints and it can even help to reduce pain!


You don’t have to become a marathoner to start reaping the benefits of exercise! Just get out there and get moving!

Can Turmeric Really Help with Joint Pain? December 04 2014

Turmeric is one of the high quality ingredients that we use. You may be wondering what a spice that is commonly found in Asian dishes and curry is doing in a joint supplement. The answer is a simple one, studies have shown that curcumin, the ingredient in turmeric that gives it its golden color, has been shown to provide relief for pain and increase joint function.

Turmeric has been shown to be an effective, all-natural alternative to other drugs that can alleviate joint discomfort, like ibuprofen, and even some doctors are starting to take notice. It used to be that natural drug alternatives were dismissed immediately by doctors everywhere, but turmeric and other supplements like it, are starting to change that reputation. There are even reports that say that many doctors have started to suggest alternative medicines for their patients at higher rate than ever before.

Many people are aware that turmeric is found in curry and South Asian dishes, but not many people realize that it is actually an effective alternative to ibuprofen for treating joint pain!

Exercise and Synodrin is a Winning Combination for Pain Relief for Arthritis October 20 2014

We’ve discussed before on our blog how our joint support supplements can alleviate pain and get you back to living an active lifestyle. A more active lifestyle can, in turn, help alleviate joint pain even more. Using Synodrin and exercise together can be the formula for great pain relief for arthritis. But how do these two things work to eliminate pain in your joints?

  • You don’t have to be a bodybuilder or a marathon runner to experience the benefits of exercise for joint pain relief. Even moderate exercise can help alleviate joint pain. When you exercise, you are strengthening the muscles in your body that surround your joints. When those muscles are stronger, they can help support the joints, taking some of the strain off of the joint itself and protecting the joint at the same time. Plus, more exercise will help reduce the amount of stiffness and pain you experience in the mornings (common for joint pain sufferers).
  • Synodrin increases the benefit of exercise for pain relief for arthritis through its natural ingredients. Each ingredient in the supplement and lotion has been carefully chosen for its healing properties and ability to increase the body’s natural lubrication of the joints. Some of the ingredients are natural pain relievers, too, by decreasing the inflammation in your joints that are responsible for much of the stiffness and pain that you experience. Our supplements and lotions work together to target your joints and give you back the ability to enjoy an active lifestyle.
Place your order for Synodrin products today and see the difference they can make in your ability to be active, and how they work to help alleviate your pain. We’ll ship to you for free when you spend $49 or more, or you can join our Auto Ship Discount Club for even more savings. Check it out today!
