According to the American Heart Association, up to 30 percent of Americans are taking some form of antioxidant supplement. Antioxidants, such as Vitamins C and E, may help keep the body balanced and healthy, support the immune system and nourish radiant skin.

"Many of the top antioxidant-abundant foods -- fresh fruits, berries, vegetables, cereals and legumes -- are nutritionally beneficial, but not always convenient for on-the-go snacking," said Rosemary Riley, Ph.D., nutrition scientist for Abbott Nutrition. "Fruitified ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars pack antioxidants and pieces of real fruit into a portable, great-tasting snack."

Fruitified ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars are available nationwide at grocery stores, mass merchandisers, natural foods stores, convenience stores, drug stores and club stores.
