Every cell in the body continually carries out millions of biochemical processes requiring oxygen. By-products of this cellular metabolic process are unstable electrons called oxidants or “free radicals.” Unfortunately, these free radicals are not harmless. Their chief danger comes from the damage they incur upon cellular structures or DNA. ANTI-oxidants reduce the effects of dangerous oxidants by binding with them, thereby, decreasing their destructive power. Food sources of antioxidants include those with high levels of vitamin A, C, E, and beta-carotene, such as spinach and liver. Anti-oxidants are thought to have a role in slowing the aging process, preventing heart disease, and protecting against the development of cancers.

And September marks the beginning of the fall vegetable planting season — the most abundant season in desert gardening. So, preparing the garden’s soil is on every vegetable grower’s August checklist.
