 About the Book 

Joints, like all tissues in the body, rely on nutrients for maintenance and repair. The horse’s body prioritizes its use of nutrients, first supporting vital organs—heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and brain—then giving what nutrients are left over toMoreJoints, like all tissues in the body, rely on nutrients for maintenance and repair. The horse’s body prioritizes its use of nutrients, first supporting vital organs—heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and brain—then giving what nutrients are left over to the rest of the anatomy. It is vitally important that the horse’s diet include sufficient nutrients to make it all the way to the organs at the end of the body’s hierarchy, the joints. Supplementing for joint health without first establishing a nutritional foundation is a waste of effort and money.In Joint Health—A Nutritional Perspective, Dr. Juliet M. Getty explains joint structure and the dietary requirements to maintain or repair joints, then discusses various ingredients found in common joint supplements and their appropriate applications. The book is expanded from her teleseminar on the subject with additional valuable information about the nutritional basis for joint health.
