Currently, many studies are conducted, and their results again confirmed the correctness of "nutritional standards", which recommend at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily. One of the possible prognostic factors of atherosclerosis are s biochemical markers of inflammation like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and alpha-tumor necrosis factor (TNF alpha). It was established credible feedback the CRP with the consumption of fruits, vitamin C and folate in the diet, IL-6 - with the consumption of legumes, vegetables, beta-carotene and vitamin C, alpha-TNF - beta-carotene and luteolin. With regard to this indicator of oxidative stress, F2-isoprostane as then showed an inverse correlation to urinary excretion of the total amount of fruits and vegetables, vitamin C, beta-carotene and flavonoids. And the greatest beneficial effect on the studied parameters provides the early consumption of fruit and vegetables since youth. According to WHO, the diseases caused by deficiency of nutrients, is approximately 75–80% of all known diseases, and socioeconomic damage is great also. There is a direct and constant lack of even trace amounts of micro-and macronutrients necessary for normal life, can cause and exacerbate many diseases. To compensate for this condition it is necessary to optimize the introduction of healthy food products.
