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 Edgewater, 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:

EDGEWATER, New Jersey (WABC) -- Two boys were rescued after being stuck for hours inside a tunnel in New Jersey on Sunday.
The Edgewater tunnel is featured on 'Weird Things to See in New Jersey.' Firefighters were able to save the boys after dragging a boat into the tunnel to locate them.
"We got down there - a lot of water, at least three feet, so myself, and Lt, Jacobson put on water rescue suits," said Lt. Thomas Quinton, Jr.
Officials say they were sitting on a pipe that runs the entire length of the tunnel in order to stay out of the water.
The boys said they were sitting in the tunnel for two hours.
Rescue crews put the boys in a boat and pulled them out to safety. Firefighters believe the boys entered the tunnel in Fairview, when their Sunday adventure in a heavy rainstorm turned into a dangerous trap.
Over in Livingston, there was another dramatic rescue. This time, two boys were riding their bikes along Canoe Brook when the heavy rainfall turned the normally calm brook into a powerful abductor.
Eyewitness News is told they were suddenly swept into the rising current - one was able to call his mother.
By the time help arrived, the boys were carried about 200 yards downstream. Officials report one was able to get out of the water, the other hanging onto a fence.
Thankfully boy boys are home tonight - shaken, but safe.
"We just saw some ambulances and fire trucks in back of the mason building across the street," said Ross Myers.

Summer is officially here and there is no better way to kick off the season than to enjoy a gorgeous new restaurant in the heart of Edgewater. Bonita by the River, located at 190 River Road, opened this past week, bringing a unique Euro-style tapas bar to the area just in time for summer. Read on to learn all about this new restaurant and its vibrant menu.
The space at 190 River Road used to be home to Mariners Bistro but has a new identity for Summer 2023 as Bonita by the River. The team behind popular Bergen County spots including Fig + Tomato, Cork + Crust, and Augie’s Trattoria is behind this new spot. Bonita by the Water will feature a traditional Spanish menu accented by other classic European flavors and twists made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. This restaurant is good for an intimate date night or a night out with friends. It features a brunch, lunch, and drink menu that is to die for. The restaurant has an outdoor bar and deck to enjoy food and drinks.
The lunch and dinner menus are reminiscent of an upscale Euro-style eatery, filled with hot and cold dishes and a blend of seasonal flavors. Options for lunch include salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, a raw bar, and a selection of appetizers. With classic Spanish dishes such as ham + manchego cheese croquetas and other plates such as the fig + prosciutto sandwich, which combines the sweet and savory flavors of two of our favorite summer ingredients. We are also gushing over the incredible raw bar offerings, which include chilled lobsters, tuna tartare, Bonita oysters, spicy shrimp ceviche, and – if you’re up for it – a seafood tower that could feed a small army.
The dinner menu is a bit more formal, with tapas, raw bar, flatbreads, as well as surf + turf entrees and side dishes. The tapas menu is a surefire way to start a great meal or accompany drinks and will whisk dinners to the Mediterranean with dishes like the grilled pulpo, shrimp Ibiza, or mussels y chorizo. The surf and turf entrees, which range between $23 and $73 include paella for two, stuffed lobster, Bronzino, a private reserve pork chop, and churrasco, amongst others.
The drinks are just as unique and refreshing as the menu and include an extensive wine and cocktail list. With wine by the glass and bottle, there are quite a few options for every palate including, reds, whites, + sparkling options ranging from $10-$15 by the glass and $30-$135 by the bottle. Don’t sleep on the Champagne + Oyster Bar. Trust us on this one.

Growing up, Margot Adams’s relationship with her mother Gina Kuyers wasn’t always smooth. But as adults, they learned to work well together ? literally.
In 2019, Adams joined her mother's business, Luxeire, which creates comfortable women's clothing using ecofriendly fabric, as head of marketing and sales.
Kuyers learned to sew at a young age, designed her own clothes in college and always had a sewing machine for quick fixes, but doesn't consider her skills professional-level. She does know how to find information, though; a 20-year career in school psychology instilled research skills that benefit her self-proclaimed clothes obsession. To launch Luxeire, she dug into the history of design, textiles, and fashion shifts through the ages.
Kuyers eventually pivoted from her career in school psychology to dedicate herself to Luxeire. “There’s no way we could accomplish what we do and have different focuses,” Kuyers says.
Adams attended Parsons School of Design in New York City, where she studied strategic design and management to earn a business degree. Along with the business savvy she brings to Luxeire, her longtime photography interest made it easy to take pictures of herself in the brand’s clothes for the website (she’s the model featured in every photo on the site, too).
That dream started to take shape as Kuyers’ hobby, but in 2019 it grew into a business that generated profits. But she needed someone with the skillsets she didn’t have before the business could take off. She didn’t need to look far to find the perfect match to complement her capabilities.
Adams learned from interning with a small shoe brand how to get the business moving at a low cost. Her knowledge coupled with her mother’s eye for fashion brought their luxury clothing business Luxeire to life.
Adams became her mother’s business partner with enough experience to manage many duties, but “A lot of it has been self-taught,” she says, including some coding in order to update Luxeire’s website. “I’m constantly learning, and I think working with my mom … being able to do something that will potentially help the family … has been very rewarding,” Adams says. “I have a lot of stake in the company because I care about its success beyond the finances involved.”
Luxeire sells “timeless” staple clothing items “that women want in their wardrobes everyday”— solid-colored button-ups, long sleeve shirts, tank tops and turtlenecks — made with breathable, easy-to-wash fabrics.
The idea stemmed from Kuyers’ lifelong adoration of high-end and vintage fashion and her garments collected from thrift stores and auction items over the years.
“I found that a lot of beautiful fashion, almost like pieces of artwork, are impossible to keep clean (and) they’re not that comfortable,” Kuyers says. “I wanted create something that was stylish and comfortable to wear beneath so that I could enjoy all these crazy, fun clothes I had.”
“We are all victims of having purchased something that looked great, we put it on and it’s not really that comfortable” Adams agrees.
Kuyers realized people want to look good, but also feel as comfortable as possible, something that grew even more apparent as everyone hunkered down at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Edgewater-based family’s clothing brand took off with its first and best-selling item, a white button-up shirt. It’s not just a standard collared dress, though. Luxeire’s shirts look “tailored and sophisticated,” in Kuyers’ words, but comfortable enough for everyday wear.
As the business took off, the concept evolved from innerwear to tops that look good on the outside while also feeling soft against the wearer’s skin. The scoop-neck shirts and turtlenecks are versatile, Adams notes. Friends have worn their Luxeire tops under clothing to warm up on a ski trip and again to go out on the town.
Karen Macartney, a close family friend who helped them with some accounting tasks, has not found anything quite like it anywhere else.
“I support (Luxeire) for two main reasons: the quality and design of the garments, and to support a small, American-made, woman-owned manufacturer,” Macartney says. “What really makes a difference in Luxeire pieces is the very high-quality, breathable & stretchy (but not clingy) fabric … and the design and cut of the tops and shirts. The styles enhance so many different body shapes.”
Adams and Kuyers’ clothing uses nylon and spandex blend fabrics sourced from a mill in Bergamo, Italy, and made entirely from recycled materials. That quality, along with its unique softness and ability to machine wash, sets Luxeire’s items apart from other clothes. But the material is not typically used to create a structured garment.
“It’s difficult to work with … which is why other companies aren’t doing it,” Kuyers says. “But our fabric is what makes the product, so there’s no way around that.”
Only one person in the New York studio they used for manufacturing was trained to sew it. Physically putting together Luxeire clothing is one of the few tasks the mother-daughter duo outsources. Mainly, though, they’re a “lean, mean team” of two.
The Luxeire leaders anticipate more success in their business future. They’re growing fast, so they need “more hands,” Adams says. She hopes to hire an intern with expertise in areas she’s not as familiar with.
Recently, Luxeire introduced two new fabrics that feel similar to athleticwear or lingerie. Kuyers and Adams are eager to launch their first-ever seasonal collections, starting with a fresh color pallet coming in the fall. Shoppers can also expect new shirt styles coming to the online shop, and they hope to gain many more customers in the coming year.
Adams and Kuyers say they got to where they are today by navigating obstacles, both in their relationship and with the business. “Every time we hit some kind of bump in the road, that’s really the time I’ve noticed when we’ve buckle down and been like, alright, something needs to change,” Adams says. “Our business, I think, has always improved after those bumps in the road.”
A joint venture between the Maxal Group, EnviroFinance Group and Equity Resource Investments has received a $50 million pre-development loan from Northwind Group to prepare a nearly 20-acre site along the Hudson River in Edgewater, N.J., for a mixed-use development with up to 1,200 multifamily units.The site at 615 River Road was formerly owned by the Hess Oil and used as an oil tank farm dating back to the 1960s.

A joint venture between the Maxal Group, EnviroFinance Group and Equity Resource Investments has received a $50 million pre-development loan from Northwind Group to prepare a nearly 20-acre site along the Hudson River in Edgewater, N.J., for a mixed-use development with up to 1,200 multifamily units.
The site at 615 River Road was formerly owned by the Hess Oil and used as an oil tank farm dating back to the 1960s. It is one of the last large undeveloped sites along the Hudson River in an area known as New Jersey’s Gold Coast. Formerly a mostly industrial area, River Road in Edgewater has become home to multiple residential and commercial developments.
The joint venture plans to develop three 25-story towers with one- to three-bedroom apartments, including 180 to 240 affordable units. The 1.2 million-square-foot project, designed by FXCollaborative of New York, will include 20,000 square feet of commercial space and a wide range of amenities including a 2.5-acre waterfront park. The development will also feature a new direct water ferry station connecting to Midtown and Downtown Manhattan and a New Jersey Transit bus stop, which will also provide direct service to New York City.
The developers settled a lawsuit last year with the Borough of Edgewater and agreed to transfer a portion of the property valued at approximately $12 million to the borough for use as a future public school and open recreational space.
Bruce Sturman, a managing director of Manhattan-based Maxal Group, said in a prepared statement Northwind had a clear vision on how to finance a large-scale project like 615 River Road. He said they look forward to continuing to work with the Northwind team as they begin development at 615 River Road and future high-end developments along the Hudson River.
Northwind, a Manhattan-based real estate private equity firm, provided the $50 million first mortgage pre-development loan through its real estate debt funds. The firm provided the loan closing with flexible terms, which will provide the borrower with additional time and capital to prepare the site for development in 2023.
Ran Eliasaf, founder and managing partner of Northwind Group, said in prepared remarks the team’s familiarity with the rapidly growing Edgewater market enabled it to underwrite and execute the financing quickly and efficiently. He said Northwind is actively lending to quality borrowers with well-located assets. Within the past month, Northwind originated more than $112 million in new loans and is equipped to continue to provide flexible financing solutions from its three discretionary debt funds under management, which have deployed more than $1 billion in loans combined. The real estate private equity firm has $3 billion in assets under management.
Earlier this month, Northwind provided $62 million in financing to a joint venture between SB Development and Hazelton Capital Group to complete NOVA, an 86-unit luxury condo development in Long Island City, N.Y. The joint venture received a first mortgage completion to condo inventory loan from Northwind for its $70 million ground-up, 95,000-square-foot development.
Earlier Waterfront Project
The Maxal Group has been an active developer and real estate investor in New York and New Jersey’s Gold Coast. In December 2019, a partnership of Maxal and Hartz Mountain Industries secured a $100 million loan from M&T Bank for its recently completed waterfront property in Weehawken, N.J., known as Harbor 1500. Located within Hartz Mountain’s Lincoln Harbor mixed-use development, the luxury rental building has 236 units. Harbor 1500 sits on a pier along the Hudson River and had previously been an office building that was redeveloped by the joint venture. The property is close to the Lincoln Tunnel, which connects New Jersey to Manhattan.
