Not all fruit juices are the same. They differ markedly in the variety of phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity.

Close behind is the grapefruit with limonoids, a detoxifying enzyme that sparks a reaction in the liver that helps to make toxic compounds more water soluble for excretion from the body.
