Almost all: Fresh fruits and vegetables, if eaten or juiced, are so full a phytonutrients, which are vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, that are important in lowering the body's oxidative stress. An apple has 6 mgs of vitamin c, but with the 12, 000 other phytonutrients, gives more antioxidant protection than eating 1500 mgs of synthetic vitamin c.
