Humans are blessed with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables by the nature. Fruits and vegetables are significant sources of several vitamins and minerals that play vital role for the maintenance of good health. The manuscript provides a useful overview of the beneficial effects of fruits and vegetables, and their vitamins content that support the immune system. It discusses fat and water-soluble vitamins in fruits and vegetables with outstanding care and their role in maintaining the body’s balance, preventing disease such as malnutrition and in adjunctive therapy. Among the fruits and vegetables that can be considered as functional foods because of their useful physiological effect, the most important content evaluation of the grapes, apples, bananas, carrots, beetroots, onions, and lemons is the main goal of the manuscript. These fruits and vegetables were selected for their useful components and their role in international gastronomy, among others. We hope to contribute to both the knowledge of readers and the protection of their health.
