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!

Joint Pain Relief For the 360 Joints In Your Body March 28 2014

You have about 360 joints in your body. A joint is technically defined as a point where two bones come together, so some joints (like the ones in your skulls) don’t actually move. These fixed-state joints aren’t what we normally think of when we think about our joints. More commonly, we think about ball-and-socket joints like our shoulders, the gliding joints of our ankles and wrists, or the hinge joints of our knees. There are also condyloid joints like our fingers, pivot joints in our neck, and saddle joints in our thumbs.

With all of this movement happening in our body, it is no wonder that sometimes things go wrong. All those moving parts need to be well maintained and well lubricated to continue working well. As we get older, the natural cushioning of our joints breaks down and leave us vulnerable to joint pain and stiffness. Our joint pain relief products are made to help your joints feel and work better, no matter if they are hinge, pivot, glide, or any other type of joint. That means our products work on your fingers, knees, back, and more to relieve pain and inflammation and give you back your range of motion.

Protect each one of your joints with the help of Synodrin. Our supplements and lotion will work to give your joints a double dose of helpful all-natural ingredients that lubricate your joints and ease inflammation and stiffness. Get free shipping when you spend over $49, but take advantage of our automatic shipment program and get free shipping on every order!

Our Joint Support Supplements Target the Source of Your Pain March 26 2014

If you’ve been searching for help with your joint pain, what have you tried? Many methods involve treating the symptoms of the joint pain problem. That usually involves pain medication, and depending on the severity of your pain, might mean taking addictive pain medications. These medications come with their own side effects and can give you more problems than joint pain does. When the pain medication wears off, your joint pain returns. It’s a repetitive cycle that quickly gets old. That’s why we wanted to create a joint support supplement that doesn’t mask the pain, but treats it at the source. Synodrin does that, and does more than mask your painful symptoms.

Thanks to our high quality ingredients, you are getting the most effective results for your joint pain. We didn’t stop at supplements, though, and created a lotion that works along with our supplements to give you even faster results. Combining our joint support supplements with our lotion means you could start feeling results in just a few days. Imagine feeling relief from joint pain in just days, regaining the mobility and range of motion you’ve been missing.

Our joint support supplements are made in the United States in an FDA-approved facility. That means you can trust our product. We made a product that we love taking ourselves, and we wouldn’t sell anything we don’t totally stand behind. We’re so confident in our product that we want you to try Synodrin risk-free today with a 100% money back guarantee. Purchase our Synodrin supplements and lotion and if you don’t love it, return it within 60 days for a complete refund. It’s a risk free offer that could result in you feeling better than you have in years!

Synodrin's Joint Pain Relief Products Can Keep You Out of the Doctor’s Office March 24 2014

If you’ve been in to see your primary care physician in the last few years, one of your visits was likely due to chronic pain complaints. Chronic pain is one of the most common complaints heard in the doctor’s office, and millions of Americans are suffering from the condition. Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than expected, won’t go away, or consistently comes back again and again. This pain may have been in your joints, a result of illness, injury, or advancing age. It is a frustrating ailment to deal with, and often doctors have few answers for suffering patients other than addictive pain medication and risky surgery.

Our joint pain relief products can help you stay out of the doctor’s office. Our supplement and lotion works together to heal your joints, reduce the inflammation, and restore natural lubrication within the joints. This may help you avoid another trip to the doctor, and get you off of potentially harmful and addictive pain medications. Our products work to heal the source of your pain so you get long lasting relief, instead of masking the pain with medications.

You can even save money by using Synodrin! Sign up for our automatic shipment program and your first month of supplements and lotion will cost you only $29.95. That’s probably less than you pay to see your doctor during an office visit. Every month you’ll get another shipment at $15 off the regular retail price, and you’ll always get free shipping with your order. Start feeling better with Synodrin and avoid another expensive doctor’s appointment!

The Benefits of Putting Turmeric In Our Joint Support Supplements March 21 2014

If you read the ingredients list of our joint support supplements, you may be surprised to see turmeric listed. You are probably more familiar with this ingredient as a spice used in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, often in curries and other spicy dishes. The dark yellow spice is a member of the ginger family, and it’s long been used for more than just its delicious flavor. The spice is an extremely effective anti-inflammatory, and has even been shown to repair cell damage. We include 50 mg of turmeric and boswellia extracts in every dose of our joint support supplements so you are sure to get plenty of this beneficial anti-inflammatory ingredient in your diet every day.

Turmeric is just one of the carefully researched ingredients in our supplements, along with boswellia extract, cetyl myristoleate, glucosamine, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients were all strategically chosen because of their beneficial properties for anti-inflammation, joint lubrication, and joint pain relief. While we focused on choosing the best ingredients, we also wanted to ensure we could get these ingredients in the highest possible quality. When you purchase our joint support supplements, you can rest assured that you are buying the best joint support ingredients on the market.
