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 .

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! If you want to learn more about turmeric and the high quality ingredients that we put into our joint support supplements, please visit our site today! Have questions or concerns? Don’t hesitate to give us a call, because we are always happy to help however we can!

Joint Support Supplements May Beat Out Medical Devices For Joint Pain Relief October 15 2014

Could our joint support supplements beat out some of the latest joint replacement devices on the market for pain relief? An article came out recently in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) stating that some of the newest joint replacement devices on the market could be posing more risk than benefit to patients when compared to older devices. The doctor who wrote the article, Dr. Nieuwenhuijse, believe that new devices are rushed to the market and presented to consumers as the latest and greatest way to alleviate their joint pain, when that might not actually be true. This article is raising some concerns about whether doctors should be using new devices before they’ve been proven to be more effective than older devices for patients.

For those dealing with joint pain, that’s a disappointing article. We take for granted that the medical community is looking out for our best interests, and if we’re told that a joint replacement device will help us with our painful joint problems we want to believe it--but maybe you shouldn’t. You aren’t without other options when it comes to helping your joints and finding pain relief. Our joint support supplements are packed with all-natural ingredients that have helped people just like you recover range of motion and pain-free movement in their joints.

If you are tired of dealing with medical companies just trying to make a buck off of your pain, it’s time to try Synodrin. Our supplements and lotions work together to provide you with relief by decreased inflammation and increasing the body’s own natural joint lubrication. Both of these products are available on our website for you to order today. Place your order and try them out for yourself!

How Combining Our Joint Support Supplements with Massage Can Help You Find Relief October 01 2014

Suffering from joint pain can really take the spring out of your step. Joint pain can come from a variety of factors, including arthritis, degenerative joints disease, and even be the result of an accident or injury. No matter what is behind the pain you are suffering, your goal is to find relief from your pain and regain the ability to move through your day without pain. One of the things you can do is start taking our joint support supplements, and for some joint pain issues, you may find even more relief from massage therapy.

While massage feels great, is doesn’t benefit every kind of joint pain issue. According to a study that was presented at the American Massage Therapy Association National Convention a few years ago, one joint condition that can really benefit from the care of a massage therapist is rheumatoid arthritis. There have been additional studies that confirm these findings, and recommend moderate pressure massage for those with rheumatoid arthritis. Massage can help control pain symptoms and increase the flexibility of the joints.

When combined with joint support supplements from Synodrin, those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis may be able to finally find relief. The ingredients in our supplements are specially formulated to decrease inflammation while increasing the health of the joints. If you’ve been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and are having problems finding relief, try a combination of massage and our high-quality supplements along with the recommendations of your doctors. Let us know how this combination works for you!
