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 Dumont, 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:

One of the oldest programs in Bergen County is getting ready to write a new chapter.
Faced with low numbers, Dumont decided to join the Ivy Division this season as a way to spark the program. The Huskies finished 1-7 last year in a COVID season that started later and ended earlier than anyone could have imagined.
Dumont enters the new league with a win-now mentality and some of the experience that was missing a year ago. Coach Rick Burd said his team is eager to wipe away the sour taste with almost all the starters coming back.
"I think this is the most positive we've been in a long time," Burd said. "Everybody is pumped up and we bring a lot of guys back so they're really excited to get back on the field and start a new season."
The 2020 season broke off a pair of notable streaks for Dumont.
The program had reached the .500 mark in three straight years and four of the last five before falling off track a year ago.
And due to COVID cases in the district, Dumont did not play Tenafly on Thanksgiving for the first time since the series started in 1949.
The Huskies were walking off the field after a consolation round loss when they found out that the holiday game – and their season – was over.
"(Tenafly) had a good year but we felt confident going into it that we were going to play with them and hopefully beat them," Burd said. "Playing Tenafly in the last game of the year is something we always look forward to."
Football history runs deep at Dumont with a tradition that dates back to World War I.
In that time, the Huskies have produced six undefeated seasons, including back-to-back 7-0 campaigns in 1946 and 1947.
Former coach Bob Baksa led Dumont to its only sectional title in 1984 with a 23-20 comeback victory over Hawthorne.
Dumont will have a relatively young roster with about 40 players, including 17 to 18 freshmen.
Even with that youth, the Huskies will be much more seasoned on the defensive side after sending out 11 new starters last fall. The result is a cast of players who can hold each other accountable.
"I was teaching everybody from scratch last year. This year, it's nice not having to repeat myself," Burd said.
"It's nice having kids like (linebackers) Mike Gabettie and Eric Cueto and (lineman) Jackson Lockhart to tell the other kids in their position what they are supposed to do."
Burd said last week that two players are vying for the QB position: junior Anthony Piccinich and sophomore Josiah Guzman.
The offense will be bolstered by lineman Matt Fredrick (6-4, 300+ pounds) and receivers Nick Zayas and Jacob Pla.
Senior Devon Turner will receive the bulk of the carries in his third year starting at running back.
"He's our bellcow back there," Burd said. "He's definitely the guy."
Moving to the Ivy Division puts Dumont on a level playing field with its opponents.
Among the goals for Burd are to win the White division title and score a seventh straight victory over Tenafly.
"When you go through a 1-7 season or just a tough season in general, you have to build some thick skin," Burd said. "I bring back a lot of the kids who had to go through that last year. They say every day that we're not doing that again."

DUMONT – Daniel McClanahan stepped on the field with almost nothing to play for but pride. Nothing else was needed to continue Mahwah's winning tradition over Dumont.
A team that's down 10 starters and well outside a playoff spot stunned a state tournament-bound Huskies lineup on Friday night.
McClanahan scored a career-high three touchdowns and Ryon Arsala snuffed out a late onside kick attempt to lift the Thunderbirds (2-6) past Dumont (6-2), 20-13, in the SFC American Red.
What looked like a mismatch based on records and mutual opponents turned into a satisfying moment for new coach Adam Szuch and his band of three senior starters. The Thunderbirds held off Dumont behind a late interception by free safety Steven Lewis, who was playing out of position because of a 104 fever to the team's starter.
"I told them don't quit on me. I won't quit on you," Szuch said. "These kids got a lot of pride, man."
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
Szuch, who spent the last 15 years on staff as an assistant, used that attitude and some fearless playcalling with a depth chart in disarray.
The Thunderbirds went for it on fourth down twice from their own end, tried a fake field goal (unsuccessfully) and recovered a squib kick to start the game. They leaned on a freshman at middle linebacker and a senior captain who's battling through a broken hand.
All three of the Thunderbird scores came from a converted wide receiver in McClanahan at QB. He scrambled for back-to-back touchdowns after finding Arsala on an 18-yard score on his team's second drive. McClanahan also served as the team's hard-hitting strongside linebacker with the starter and backup both sidelined.
"Coach said coming into the game that we have nothing to lose," McClanahan said. "It's another football game for us. They are a state playoff team. We knew we wanted to come in and show what Mahwah is."
Mahwah is still unbeaten against Dumont in 14 matchups and all but two have been decided by double-digits.
Media speculation about the streak coming to an end provided some added motivation for the Thunderbirds. Dumont had won its last five games and was fifth in powerpoints in North Group 2.
"It's such a great feeling," Arsala said. "I'm so proud that we didn't let anyone down that played in the past."
Mahwah was able to build a 20-0 lead after Omar Ahmed forced a fumble on the first Dumont possession. McClanahan spun off a tackle four plays later and spotted Arsala wide open in the left side of the endzone for the receiver's first career touchdown. It was the start of a breakout game for Arsala, who stretched the field with four catches for 102 yards in his first start on offense.
"He knows how to play football and he finds openings," McClanahan said of the fellow junior. "I'm excited for him next year too."
Dumont came to life in the second half after going down three scores. Joseph Gessner put the Huskies on the board with a 21-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. Anthony Piccinich got Dumont within a touchdown with a six-yard keeper with 1:07 left, but Mahwah was able to fall on the ensuing kickoff.
"I'm just proud that we did all the little things right tonight for a change," Szuch said. "We didn't turn it over. We didn't get in our way. We executed. And we showed that Mahwah at 1-6 is a good football team. That's what we've been trying to prove all year."

For 48 minutes, there was no telling the North and South squads in the 23rd annual Bergen County All-Star football game that they were playing an exhibition contest.
But when all was said and done, it was a familiar story. One that ended with the North coming out on top.
Taking the lead in the final minute of the first half, one that would hold for good, the Northern Bergen squad added an insurance score late to take a 22-14 victory over the South at Westwood High School on Saturday evening.
Following a game that was set back 30 minutes by a lightning delay after the first 71 seconds of play, the North now leads the all-time series by a commanding 19-3-1 margin.
Leading a stalwart North defensive effort in the second half, Jackson Lockhart – a Dumont defensive lineman committed to Monmouth that had two sacks in this game – earned MVP honors for the winners.
“It was a ton of fun playing with these guys all week,” Lockhart said. “Sometimes during the high school season, not everyone on the field really should be, but everyone here is the best on their teams and went all out. This was a great way to prep for college and just get back into that football mindset.

With 50 seconds to go until half and down 14-7, Fort Lee quarterback Raymond Lao – off to play 1-AA college football at Wagner next fall – connected with hometown Westwood standout Jack Duggan for 41 yards to move the winners into the red zone.
Several plays later, Lao connected with Duggan again – this time from four yards away and with four seconds until halftime – to bring Northern Bergen within a point.
Two plays earlier, a 105-yard interception return for a touchdown by Elmwood Park’s Alex Picinich was called back due to a defensive holding penalty on the South.
On the very first play from scrimmage, a little trickery paid big dividends for a ready-to-play South squad.
Wood-Ridge quarterback Braden Negro, lined up at running back, took a handoff and ran right before pulling up to throw. He’d find a wide open Kyle Villani of North Arlington wide open for a 70-yard touchdown to start the game. Elmwood Park’s Justin Chavez added the extra point to make it 7-0 instantly.
At the very end of the opening quarter, the North would get on the board when Demarest’s Christopher Short would take a handoff from Ridgefield Park’s Brevin Cooney out of the shotgun, and dash eight yards to the house to level things up at 7-7.
Early in the fourth, Ramsey defensive back Gunner Summers picked off a pass deep in North territory to foil a promising drive for the South squad.
On the ensuing drive, the North marched down to the South 7, where they faced a key 4th-and-2. Out of the shotgun, Glen Rock quarterback Andrew Knight called his own number and ran around right end for the score, building the South’s lead up to 22-14.
Recently retired Westwood coach Dennis Hard, serving as the North’s honorary coach with seven of his Cardinals playing for him, received one last Gatorade bath as the winners were running down the clock.
“It was a fun week being around all of these guys,” said Hard. “The best part was getting a chance to be on the field one more time with my Westwood kids who we achieved great things with, and on our field.”
