answer
All fruit juices have unique nutritional profiles, so it is great to enjoy a variety of 100% juices. Some have more vitamin C, such as grapefruit and orange, but orange also has more of the important nutrient, folate. If you are looking to increase cancer-fighting antioxidants, then select dark purple grape, cherry, blueberry or pomegranate juice. Many of the 100% juice blends contain mostly apple juice, which is fairly low in vitamins, so look for juices that have more of the reds, purples and orange fruits.
