1. Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease causing inflammation and deformity of the joints. Other problems throughout the body (systemic problems) may also develop, including inflammation of blood vessels (vasculitis), the development of bumps (called rheumatoid nodules) in various parts of the body, lung disease, blood disorders, and weakening of the bones (osteoporosis).
3. Osteoarthritis: Explained Simply
The first sign of osteoarthritis is the deterioration of healthy cartilage, therefore, understanding cartilage is crucial to understanding osteoarthritis and how you can effectively ease your osteoarthritis pain.

What a difference a pound makes
By J. R. Rogers
I was reading a news report the other day that I found a little bit surprising. It said that somewhere between 35% and 50% of all doctor visits involve musculoskeletal issues. Even though I know that arthritis is a major problem I had no idea that these numbers were so high.
The pounds you take off make a huge difference
This same report said that in women the loss of as little as eleven (11) pounds can reduce arthritis pain by as much as 50%. That is a major gain on the pain front for very little effort. Of course, as I have said for many years weight loss slows the progression of arthritis as well.
Light exercise and how it helps
You do not have to go out and run any marathons. All it takes is a little effort on your part to shed those excess pounds. And, the very exercises I have recommended for years will do the job. Walking, swimming and bicycle riding are all beneficial. And, they are low-impact so they do not generally pose as many risks for injuries as more challenging exercise does.
Exercise and synovial fluid
What happens when you exercise is that synovial fluid is drawn into your joint structures. That is beneficial to the joints but if it stays in the joint structure too long it can cause cracking of cartilage. Of course, that is not the result you are looking for. All you have to do to avoid that is ice down the joints after you finish exercising. This moves the synovial fluid over to the lymphatic system to dispose of it. And, this should be done within about ten minutes after you finish exercising according to this report.
Omega fish oils
These are beneficial in helping to reduce the symptoms (joint pain) that arthritis causes. That is why we add them to Syn-flex®. We want you to gain all the ground you can in your fight to alleviate arthritis pain.
The good news is that this study confirms something else I have been saying for years. Arthritis may be an inevitable consequence but it can be controlled and in many instances avoided altogether.
Think about the simple things you can do to help yourself. After all, it is a small price to pay to beat back the effects of arthritis.
See you next time.
