ABSTRACT

Foods and vegetables belong to an important class of natural products with capacity to exert therapeutic effects – due to presence of phytonutrients. A phytonutrient is any non – toxic food component that has scientifically proven health benefits, including diseases prevention and treatment. This article focuses on about 40 Natural products (fruits, vegetables, spices) which includes Water melon (Citrulus lanatus), Apple (Malus domestica), Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) and Banana (Musa sp), Tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum), Turmeric (Curcuna longa), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Moringa (Moringa olifera) etc.  and the role of the bioactive components present in them to cure some chronic diseases; considering the least or non- side –effects of the organic compounds. These bioactive compounds perform roles such as antioxidants, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory biological antibiotics, probiotics, anti-diabetic etc. As we elucidate in this article, these phytonutrients indirectly consumed in these natural fruits and vegetables can serve as a lasting treatment for all known chronic diseases.
