Which one is better for you, blueberries or cranberries?
It's not even close, according to the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, citing a study from the Technical University of Denmark.
Blueberries are rich in phenolic compounds, which are antioxidants, so researchers thought blueberry juice might be a useful antioxidant drink. They compared the benefits of a pint of cranberry juice cocktail with a pint of blueberry juice, using sugar water as a control.
Cranberry juice, which is rich in vitamin C -- a powerful antioxidant -- showed real benefits. But the phenolic compounds in blueberry juice proved no more effective than the sugar water.
