Online PR News – 30-March-2010 – – FORT MYERS, FLA. – (March 30, 2010) – Flexcin International, a leading manufacturer of all-natural arthritis supplements and the maker of Flexcin with CM8™, reports a 31.6 percent overall increase in orders to people 55-plus who indicated they’re taking the supplement for on-the-job aches and joint pain. The increase is compared with year ago totals and corresponds with the nationwide trend showing older people un-retiring because of the toll the recession’s had on their personal savings.

According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, in the past five years people between the ages of 46-54 have seen their average net worth drop by 45 percent while those between the ages of 55-64 have seen their net worth cut nearly in half. Experts believe this is a leading reason why many people age 55 and over are returning to the workforce.

“There is a distinct correlation between the number of older people returning to work and the increase of our business to the same demographic looking for relief from arthritis and joint pain,” said Tamer Elsafy, CEO and founder of Flexcin International. “Our customers have told us they’re dealing with the effects of arthritis in the workplace now that they’re back on the job.”

Other data points from Flexcin that show an increase of arthritis in the workplace:

--26.4% more Flexcin use for white-collar jobs (accounting, attorney, marketing, management)
--44.7% more Flexcin use for retail jobs
--48.3% more Flexcin use for blue-collar jobs (manufacturing, construction, mechanical)

The majority of aches and joint pain are reported to be found in the back, neck, hands and knees. Furthermore, customers have said they feel more pain following increased use of computers and technology, including hand-held smart phones like the Blackberry, which have been known to cause “text-neck” aches and joint pain.
