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 Leonia, 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:

LEONIA — Nearly four months after Bergen County pledged to form a committee to discuss revising a controversial plan for a great lawn on an undeveloped section of Overpeck Park, borough officials have heard nothing further, so they've asked for a meeting to give their input on the project.
A letter sent to Leonia Mayor Judah Zeigler from Thomas Duch, the county administrator, in late October outlined the county’s plan to form a committee to “determine the ultimate course of park development,” at the section of the park known as Area Four.
But since that letter, Leonia officials said, they have not received an update on when the committee will be formed or who would be on it. With spring a month away, they say they are eager to work with the county on a plan.
“The county executive did make the commitment publicly, and I have no doubt he will honor his commitment,” Zeigler said. “This has been a longstanding concern of Leonia and I think all the municipalities in this area. The county has not really involved us in its planning.”
Leonia and four neighboring municipalities gave the county the land to form Overpeck Park decades ago. The land had been used for years as a landfill. Area Four is one of the last undeveloped parts of the park, and until recently it was filled with trees and wildlife.
But last spring, workers took down more than 100 trees there as part of the work to cap and remediate the land. The felling of the trees during the height of nesting season for many birds — and a plan to develop the area with a great lawn and walking paths — sparked criticism from residents and environmental groups, who urged the county to preserve the area as natural open space.
County officials had defended the plan, which they said was conceptual, and said it would provide the public access to what was an underused part of the park.
Leonia NJ to Bergen County: 'Hit the pause button' on controversial Overpeck Park project
The county’s letter in October promising to form a committee was in response to a resolution adopted by the Leonia Borough Council, as public anger over the project grew. The measure called for the county to suspend work on the project until a meeting could be held to present plans and hear public opinion on the future of the site.
Last month Zeigler sent a letter to County Executive Jim Tedesco asking for the committee to convene before the end of March and then meet regularly to assist “representatives from Bergen County by providing design input, in order to arrive at the best possible holistic plan for Overpeck Park.”
He suggested the committee include himself, a council member, members of the borough’s environmental and shade tree commissions, and representatives from the other municipalities that donated land.
“We gave them the land decades ago for use as parkland, and we want to make sure the planning is consistent with what we want for our municipality,” he said. “We want to raise concerns before they happen. There’s not much you can do after 100 trees are cut down.”
Signs opposing the project still decorate borough yards, and a petition calling for the county to restore the area as a wooded habitat for birds and other wildlife continues to gain signatures, said Bill Ziegler, a borough councilman.
"I think it’s very important the county respond to the borough’s letter and that we address the concerns of the more than 1,700 people who signed the petition. The sooner the better,” he said.
Representatives from the county did not respond to requests for comment.
Christoph Hesterbrink, who was the chair of the Leonia Environmental Commission until he joined the council last month, said while he understands that the environmental work will take some time, there needs to be more transparency as the project moves forward.
“This is not adversarial. We just want to collaborate,” he said. “We just don’t want to be presented with a plan and have no input.”

One popular sushi spot that carved its place in downtown Ridgewood's bustling restaurant scene is bringing its well-known omakase experience to a new Bergen County location, so get ready to take your palate on an adventure.
Shumi Japanese Cuisine is expanding its unique, fresh fish offerings and opening new doors in Leonia on February 2. While guests can expect much of the same sushi and entree offerings from the Ridgewood location, Shumi Leonia is adding some unique suprises and exclusive dining opportunities.
To begin, the award-winning restaurant is sharing its general menu reflective of Ridgewood's. Appetizers include go-tos like shumai and tempura, along with unique items like Otoro Salad (grilled blue fin tuna belly) and salmon mozzarella. Entreés feature standard — yet delicious — teriyaki choices, while rolls like the lobster roll and Shumi roll (think: spicy tuna, caramelized spicy mayo, eel sauce, ebi, and crunch) are beautifully wrapped and served. Noodle lovers will enjoy their flavorful Ramen options including Miso and Soy Sauce.
The magic and mystery, however, lie in Shumi Leonia's new private omakase room that can seat up to nine people. The menu will be a departure from its sister spot, while serving chef's choice of the freshes fish and ingredients. Hot appetizers like seared wagu beef will be enjoyed throughout, along with sushi and sashimi including Hokkaido uni, Otoro salmon belly, monkfish liver, and yellow clam. The omakase experience is sandwiched between a starter course of soup and Japanese custard, and the final course of ramen. This VIP experience perfected by owner David Seo and Master Chef Kunihiko Aikasa aims to make every guest feel special while tickling your taste buds.
The sleek, modern design of the upscale open dining room includes an 18-person sushi bar, plus tables to seat about 42 (with the ability to accommodate a few more tables if the need arises). You'll be surrounded by a bright yet simplistic design that offers plenty of room — much more than the current Ridgewood space — without feeling cramped or crowded.
As the opening date for Shumi in Leonia quickly approaches, snag your reservation as they're sure to fill up quickly.

LEONIA MAYOR JUDAH ZEIGLER WILL SEEK RE-ELECTION
Zeigler Says Economic Development Will Be Top Priority of Next Term
LEONIA, NJ (February 11, 2019)—Leonia Mayor Judah Zeigler today announced his intention to seek re-election in the Borough’s municipal elections this November.
Citing the progress made during his first term, as well as his commitment to driving substantive economic development over the next four years, Mayor Zeigler said consistency in leadership was crucial to ensure Leonia could meet the unique challenges it faces, while preserving Leonia’s unique residential character.
“It is critically important that we relieve the property tax burden shouldered almost entirely by our homeowners, while also ensuring we can continue to deliver the high levels of service our taxpayers expect and deserve,” Mayor Zeigler said. “We cannot squander the rare opportunity we currently have to accomplish these goals by developing the Willow Tree Road area and the Gateway area along Fort Lee Road and Grand Avenue. This redevelopment would provide significant tax ratables thereby reducing the property tax burden on single family homeowners,” he said.
Since his election in 2016, Mayor Zeigler has resurrected the Borough’s long-neglected Capital Improvement plan, paving three dozen streets, replacing aging garbage trucks, and engaging citizens in the planning of a new municipal building to address pervasive and long-standing code violations. Under his direction, the Borough’s online presence has been completely overhauled and upgraded. Mayor Zeigler has honored his commitment to improve government transparency by holding Town Hall meetings and by actively recruiting a broader cross-section of Leonia residents to serve on Borough boards, commissions and volunteer organizations. He has worked to enhance the safety of all who live and work in Leonia by leading the effort to create and implement Leonia’s “Safe Streets” initiative, designed to ensure that navigational apps direct commuters to Leonia’s main roads, rather than through its narrow, residential side streets.
“Leonia faces unique and substantial challenges, and now more than ever, we must have stable, consistent leadership that will continue to improve our town for everyone who lives here, while staying true to the preservation of the residential character of our community, which makes Leonia so special,” Mayor Zeigler said.
A lifelong resident of Leonia, Judah Zeigler has served his community as a council member, planning board member and recreation commissioner, and served as Mayor in the 1990s, when his “Customer First” initiative was a finalist for the John F. Kennedy School of Government’s Local Government Award. He was one of the founders of the Teen Center Committee and helped lead the effort to start the Leonia Sports Boosters carnival. He continues to be an active volunteer coach, referee mentor and board member in support of Leonia’s youth sports programs. Immediately prior to becoming Mayor, Zeigler founded Save Leonia Zoning, successfully negotiating a substantial reduction in size of an apartment building being planned in a residential area, while securing a substantial donation from the developer to fund shade tree purchases and youth sports equipment for the Recreation Center.
A tireless advocate on behalf of people with disabilities, Mayor Zeigler was recognized by the New Jersey State Senate and Assembly as being “a major advocate in the state on behalf of people with Autism.” He has served on the board of trustees for Autism New Jersey and for ten years, as a member of the Governor’s Council on Autism. Zeigler partnered with Senator Loretta Weinberg to draft and secure passage of legislation that has raised over $4 million per year since passage, with the funds going to pay for research into the causes of and treatments for autism. In recognition of his leadership on this initiative, Zeigler was invited to speak at the bill signing ceremony when the bill was passed in 2003.
Mayor Zeigler and his wife, Michele—also a Leonia native—have been married for 30 years. They have two children, Nicholas, 24 and Jordan, 16.

Shumi in Ridgewood has been regarded as one of, if not the best, sushi restaurants in New Jersey and is now coming to Leonia. The award-winning experience opens on February 2, 2023, at 354 Broad Avenue. It will include an incredible exclusive private Omakase Room that can seat eight VIP guests.
New Jerseyans have enjoyed Shumi’s omakase sushi eating experience since opening its Ridgewood doors in 2017. With owner David Seo featured on all the Best Sushi in NJ lists and voted NJ’s Number One Best Sushi, it is no doubt that the success will carry on in the thriving food-scene city of Leonia. Alongside David Seo is Master Chef Kunihiko Aikasa, former owner of Shumi Somerville, a true master of all things Japanese cuisine and is now in his 46th year cooking as a professional chef. Together they cut and serve the finest fish available while also creating an amiable and welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels like luxury.
“Aikasa and I are looking forward to opening in Leonia. We are excited to bring our Omakase to the thriving neighborhood and especially thrilled to offer the private room omakase dining experience in New Jersey,” says David Seo, the seasoned veteran with 21 years of Japanese cuisine under his culinary belt.
The Omakase experience is derived from the Japanese word pronounced oh-MAH-kah-say directly translates to “I’ll leave it up to you.” When you dine in this fashion, the menu is left entirely to the Chef’s choice. You will be able to enjoy a piece-by-piece multi-course meal. The private omakase room is situated at the back of the dining room and it holds a maximum of 9 people but 8 is the ideal number.
The menu in the omakase room will be totally different from the rest of the restaurant and from Ridgewood. It will include a few hot appetizers throughout the meal interspersed with the most magnificent sushi and sashimi—items like the best Hokkaido uni, Otoro, salmon belly, seared wagyu beef, monkfish liver, eel, and yellow clam just to name a few. The meal will begin with soup and Japanese custard and end with homemade ramen.
Aside from the VIP dining, the restaurant will have an open space that includes the 18-seat sushi bar, banquettes, and seating for 42, with the ability to add a few more tables as needed, making the new restaurant much larger than the Ridgewood location. The menu in the main dining room is more similar to the original location.
Shumi’s Omakase room will elevate the sushi game in New Jersey, creating a higher level of experience that is rare in the state. The new addition to Leonia will make every customer feel special and lavish. This delicious tasting experience is the perfect spot for sushi lovers and will be the icing on the cake for Japanese cuisine in New Jersey.
