Varies: Synovial cells that line the synovial joints are the source of synovial fluid. They usually make more fluid in response to an inflammation of the joint capsule, a condition called synovitis. We do not really know of a therapeutic way to increase synovial fluid production in an arthritic joint, but there have been many studies and attempts to do so.
