If you're like most adults, your parents probably loaded you up with vitamin C whenever you had the sniffles or a cold. Your younger self might not have believed it worked, but as it turns out, your parents were onto something. According to doctors, vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins to consume. It might not be the cure-all for the common cold, but it absolutely helps maintain your immune system so you can fight the cold quicker. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C also protects your body from prenatal health issues, cardiovascular problems, eye diseases, and even wrinkly skin.
When your body lacks vitamin C for a long time, you're sure to notice. Though vitamin C deficiency is relatively rare in the U.S., adults who go long periods without it may get sick frequently and suffer from other immune system issues. In extreme cases, people may get scurvy, which causes a litany of issues like joint pain, bleeding gums, and depression.
B vitamins like riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folic acid (b9), and cobalamin (B12) play a crucial role in keeping you healthy and maintaining your overall wellbeing. If you want a healthier body, B vitamins are critical, as they are literally building blocks that help preserve your brain functionality, cell metabolism, and energy. For pregnant women, B vitamins in IV drips are especially important because they help your new baby's brain develop while in the womb. B vitamins have also been shown to prevent congenital disabilities. Plus, they help ease feelings of nausea, which is a big bonus for moms and dads alike.
When your body is vitamin B deficient, you're putting yourself at risk of many health problems, such as complications with pregnancy, nervous system disorders, amenia, and gastric cancers.
Like the other vitamins and nutrients on this page, magnesium plays an important part in your body's total health. As a cofactor or helper molecule, magnesium has a role in 600+ bodily functions, including protein formation, nerve function, gene function, muscle movement, and energy production. If you're having a stressful day or week, high-potency magnesium has been shown to have relaxation properties that help calm your nerves and muscles. Unfortunately, most Americans don't get enough magnesium in their diets.
When your body is magnesium deficient, you could be playing with fire. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to chronic health concerns like osteoporosis, diabetes, and even heart disease. If you're feeling unusually weak or suffering from irregular muscle cramps, a vitamin IV session from Juventee could be the solution you need.
Just about every health food and drink in the stores boasts high levels of antioxidants. That's great, but what are they? Antioxidants are substances shown to slow or prevent cell damage from free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules linked to inflammation, disease, and forms of cancer. According to the National Library of Medicine, antioxidants also act as hydrogen and electron donors, as well as enzyme inhibitors.
Most humans get some types of antioxidants naturally through eating and drinking. However, IV vitamin therapy is a much more effective way to fight back against free radicals with antioxidants. When your body lacks antioxidants, free radical production increases, which causes oxidative stress - a harmful situation linked to arthritis, cancers, strokes, and Parkinson's disease.
Thankfully, Juventee's IV vitamin therapy in Bloomfield, NJ contains antioxidants that may scavenge and reduce the free radicals affecting your health.
Some additional vitamins and nutrients found in most IV vitamin therapies include:

In 1950, a young man named Charles Seller was struck by a train, losing one of his legs. His family and friends came together to put on a variety show named Talent Time to aid in his medical costs. This started a tradition in Bloomfield, NJ, that has lasted for more than 70 years. Each summer our members, who are in their mid teens to early thirties, produce and perform a musical in which all profits go towards someone in the area with high medical bills. This year The Charles Seller Foundation’s Talent Time Players present Newsies to benefit Justin Corino of Bloomfield.
This year's beneficiary is 3 year old Justin Corino of Bloomfield. Justin was diagnosed in August of 2022 with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is a quickly progressing cancer that begins in the bone marrow of the body.For Justin and his family it has been almost daily hospital visits for either lab work, chemotherapy treatments, sedations, and/or physical therapy. This has been a very difficult adjustment for Justin and his family, especially for his almost two-year-old brother, Owen. He has learned how to adapt to his new obstacles and lets nothing stand in his way!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story of the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Kelly and his fellow newsies take action. With help from the beautiful female reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of “the little man.” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
The Charles Seller Foundation and Talent Time production of Newsies is produced by Fallon Garretson and directed by James Miles, with musical direction by Rebecca Polynice, choreography by Tina Armenti with assistant choreography by Caitlin Miller, stage managed by Julia Debiak, costume design by Mariaelena Alameda and Taylor Piekarz, and set design by Joe Verga. Newsies will be performed at the Bloomfield High School Auditorium, located at 160 Broad Street in Bloomfield, with performances on August 3rd, 4th, 5th*, 10th, 11th and 12th*. (*denotes a 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm performance.)

BLOOMFIELD, NJ — If you’re a fan of The Brookdale in Bloomfield, there’s some good news on the horizon: the restaurant and bar’s owners plan to open two new eateries in town.
The group behind The Brookdale at 1099 Broad Street – which opened in 2020 – has become known for its massive, one-pound mozzarella stick, among many other menu items. Now, they’re setting their sights on opening a pair of new businesses just two doors down the street.
The first, Fanny's Restaurant & Bar, will serve regional Italian cuisine with contemporary flair. Meanwhile, Ladyfingers Bakery & Bar, will be a modern bakery that turns into a craft cocktail and tasting bar in the evening.
“We’ve been talking about opening an Italian restaurant since the day we opened The Brookdale, and where and when,” Kavourakis said. “When the opportunity arose to open next door with enough space to open a bakery, we had to jump on it.”
“We're big on family and community and there's nothing I love more than eating and cooking Italian food,” Kavourakis added.
Here are some details about both new enterprises, according to a news release:
Fanny's Restaurant & Bar
Named in honor of partners Joey Cinque and Anthony Cinque's Italian nonna, Fanny's will be a hybrid: think sophisticated regional Italian restaurant with classic Jersey red-sauce touches, featuring elevated, approachable classics.
Here’s what to expect:
“Seasonal Housemade Pastas; sharable appetizers including an assortment of Arancini, warm made-to-order Mozzarella and Meatballs w/Crispy Polenta Cakes & Long Hot Vinaigrette. Entrées include Cauliflower Scarpariello, Roasted 1/2 Chicken Marsala and Blueberry Steak, a Florentine classic featuring a gorgeous ribeye w/savory blueberry compote. Plus, classic desserts from Ladyfingers.”
Cocktails and wine will be “front and center,” spokespeople said.
“Our vision for the cocktail program is to stick with traditional and classic favorites while offering our own twists on them,” partner Joey Cinque said.
“We'll be focusing on martinis, Negronis and spritzes,” Cinque said. “Expect a well-curated wine list featuring Italian varietals and impressive-by-the-glass offerings.”
“From custom cakes to cocktails, the goal of our decadent dessert bar is to offer a little piece of happiness for everyone,” Kavourakis said.

BLOOMFIELD, NJ — Dozens of colorful “pedestrian pole banners” are being put on display in Bloomfield’s main commercial district as part of an ongoing effort to transform the downtown area, the Bloomfield Center Alliance (BCA) announced Thursday.
According to a statement from the nonprofit, which works with Bloomfield to promote the downtown commercial district:
“Thanks to a partnership with Bloomfield College of Montclair State University, the BCA has begun the process of coordinating the installation of 50 newly designed colorful pedestrian pole banners within the town’s main commercial district. These banners will be located along key corridors of Bloomfield Center, including Broad Street, Glenwood Avenue, Washington Street and portions of Bloomfield Avenue. The two-sided banner, which includes the BCA name and logo, displays an image of a downtown scene and the phrase: ‘Your Town, Home Town.’”
The banners were completed earlier this year and paid for through a grant from the state’s Main Street New Jersey Program – the same program that helped the BCA secure other streetscape enhancements in recent years, such as sidewalk planters, hanging flower baskets and new color-branded trash receptacles displaying the downtown name and logo.
The design of the banners was spearheaded by Yuichiro Nishizawa, who serves as chair of the Bloomfield College of Montclair State University Division of Creative Arts and Technology.
“This collaborative effort is truly born out of our strong and persistent mutual interest in community building and developing projects that showcase the vibrancy of our institution – as well as the vision and talents of our students,” Nishizawa said.
“We look forward to the full implementation of the banners throughout the downtown district and to future collaborations like this,” agreed Michael Palladino, Bloomfield College of Montclair State University Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
BCA Director Ollyn Lettman thanked the university for its help.
“We hope that local residents and out of town visitors will see these banners and other recent enhancements such as planters and flower baskets as a sign of the continuing transformation taking place in our downtown,” Lettman said.
Bloomfield Councilwoman Sara Cruz, who joined the BCA board this year, also supported the project.
“Like the new banners, there have been several aesthetic enhancements that keep the neighborhood inviting,” Cruz said. “There are more things to come that will attract people to all the great businesses in the Center.”

ATLANTIC CITY – The banner was in the backpack. A historic fourth state title was in the bag for Kira Pipkins of Bloomfield.
Pipkins dominated Newton/Kittatinny junior Liliana Zaku-Ramos, 11-1, in the 126-pound state final Saturday at Boardwalk Hall to become the state’s first female four-time state champion. Pipkins was later named Most Outstanding Wrestler.
New Jersey held its first girls state championship for wrestling in 2019. There have been four boys to win four state titles, and now Pipkins holds the honor as the first girl. Pipkins, who has committed to Columbia, is also the first New Jersey girl to win 100 matches in his career.
“It was never the target,” Pipkins said. “The target was just for me to get better every year and it just so happened when I was a senior, I had three state championships and that’s when we really wanted the fourth one.”
This season, Pipkins went 24-0 against female competition, including 16 pins. But her toughest match of the season came against Zaku-Ramos in the BCWCA Invitational, when Pipkins won 4-1.
“I knew she was going to be really tough and she would wrestle every minute as hard as she could,” Pipkins said. “I just had to keep doing my moves and it would come up in my favor.”
Pipkins showed off her quickness in the first period with a takedown that she turned into a 5-0 lead. In the second period, she demonstrated her strength, shooting for a double leg and putting Zaku-Ramos down again for an 11-0 lead.
In the third period, Pipkins showed her intelligence. With her big lead, she was content to let Zaku-Ramos use up her energy on top and wait for the final buzzer.
Then the question became, would she do a fourth backflip? The answer was yes.
“Everyone has been asking me are you doing the backflip? I would just shrug and say we’ll see,” Pipkins said. “It was fun for me to do on the mat, because I used to do gymnastics, so I just go back to my roots there and just show it on the mat.”
Pipkins said she stood on the red runway before the bout and thought ‘don’t trip’ over the lip of the mat.
“I was going through the match in my head, what I wanted to do, and blocking out everybody who wanted to talk to me and focus on what I wanted to do in the match,” Pipkins said.
One of her coaches had a big banner sticking out the top of his backpack, ready to unfurl if Pipkins won her fourth title.
Pipkins said her first season wrestling, she won one match, but she never gave up on the sport. Her goal was just to get better, and now she’s the best New Jersey girls champion has ever produced.
Until the next one comes along.
“Don’t try to be me,” Pipkins said when asked what advice she’d give to the next generation. “Try to wrestle the way you wrestle. No two matches will be the same.”
