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 Northvale, 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:

New York and New Jersey stepped up their bid to host the final of the 2026 World Cup by promising a spectacle on par with "eight Super Bowls" at a launch event on Thursday for the tournament, which will be co-hosted by the United States, Mexico and Canada.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino gave no indication as to which of the host cities across the three countries would stage the finale when the venues were announced last year.
The neighboring states, which will welcome fans at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey -- face stiff competition from Los Angeles, whose $5.5 billion indoor-outdoor SoFi Stadium in Inglewood has more of a razzmatazz appeal.
"We want to host the final. There is no better place to host the final than at MetLife Stadium," said retired NFL great Michael Strahan, who made his name with the New York Giants but has now fallen in love with soccer.
"This is football, OK? That thing I did is guys running around in tight pants running into each other."
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who was joined at the Times Square launch by New York Mayor Eric Adams, promised a spectacle beyond what the region has ever seen before.
The venue, then known as Giants Stadium, hosted seven World Cup matches in 1994 and four during the 1999 Women's World Cup.
"We think we're going to get at least eight games -- that's eight Super Bowls," said Murphy.
"Every single ticket will be sold out, I guarantee you. No matter who's playing."
The launch event was among several in host cities across the continent on Thursday, a day after Los Angeles launched the "WE ARE 26" campaign to promote the tournament.
Infantino declined to be drawn into whether the fact that Los Angeles was hosting the brand launch meant that it would host the 2026 World Cup final.
"Of course Los Angeles is an important city, is one of the 16 [host] cities," he said.
"But, obviously, it is a hub. It is an entry hub in America. It is the city where the final of the last World Cup in United States was played as well. We don't know yet where the final of this World Cup will be played. This is still up for grabs, so to say. So please send us your offers and make sure that we beef up the proposals, but Los Angeles will be one of the important cities of this World Cup, definitely."
CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani added that they would "probably have an announcement later on in the year" regarding the location of the final.

Bernie Taupin, best known as Elton John’s longtime songwriting partner, will sign copies of his new memoir, “Scattershot: Life, Music, Elton & Me” (Hachette, 416 pp., $32.50), Sept. 13 at the Books & Greetings bookstore in Northvale (Bergen County).
For information, visit booksandgreetings.com.
According to promotional material for the book, which is scheduled to be published on Sept. 12:
From his childhood in the East Midlands of England whose imagination was sparked and forever informed by the distinctly American mythopoetics of country music and cowboy culture, to the glittering, star-studded fishbowl of ’70s and ’80s Beverly Hills, “Scattershot” is simultaneously a “Tom Jones”-like picaresque journey across a landscape of unforgettable characters, as well as a striking, first-hand account of a creative era like no other and one man’s experience at the core of it.
Taupin writes about encounters with famous musicians (John Lennon, Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra) and famous non-musicians (Graham Greene, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí). According to the promotional material, the cast of characters includes “scores of notable misfits, miscreants, eccentrics, and geniuses, known and unknown. Even if they’re not famous in their own right, they are stars on the page, and we discover how they inspired the indelible lyrics to songs such as ‘Tiny Dancer,’ ‘Candle in the Wind,’ ‘Bennie and The Jets,’ and so many more.”
In a promotional blurb for the book, Elton John raved, “This is the most glorious of books. I am besotted by the life I never knew he had.” And Pete Townshend said every page of the book “is a delight, a joy, a name-dropper fan’s delight. Divine. I couldn’t put it down.”
In addition to writing songs with Elton John, Taupin has written lyrics for songs recorded by artists such as Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr and Marianne Faithfull; recorded as a solo artist and a member of the band Farm Dogs; published a book of poetry; and displayed his visual art.

New Jersey officials have lifted a stop-work order for 27 Boston Market locations in the state after they were told to shut down last month over unpaid wages.
The state Labor Department last month cited the fast-food chain for $2.5 million in unpaid wages, damages, fees and penalties, and ordered the stores to shut down.
On Thursday, the state said it would allow the locations to reopen, after recouping more than $630,000 in back pay for 314 workers. Labor Department spokesperson Thomas Wright declined to say what had happened to the rest of the damages cited last month but added that the investigation was "ongoing."
“We’re glad this investigation resulted in every dollar making it into the pockets of those who earned the money," state Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo said in a statement Thursday. “Hopefully this action puts other bad actors on notice: ‘if you don't pay your workers, we will shut you down.’"
Adoption Stories:How Businesses Are Integrating Crypto
Boston Market CEO Jignesh "Jay" Pandya, wh purchased the chain in 2020, confirmed that the New Jersey stores had reopened, according to industry news site Restaurant Business.
Stop-work orders are initiated by the state Labor Department to “halt work being performed in a manner that exploits workers, or is otherwise noncompliant with state laws and regulations," Labor officials previously said.
Officials first received a complaint in November 2022 from a Boston Market worker in Hamilton Township, whom the Thursday press release did not identify. Since then, there have been nearly three dozen additional complaints, the state said.
According to Nation’s Restaurant News, Boston Market faces a slew of lawsuits from unpaid vendors and ex-employees. Many current and former executives the outlet interviewed have questioned the chain’s ability to survive since it was bought by Pandya's Rohan Group in 2020.
The New Jersey shutdown came after the chain closed locations in Central and South Jersey. Boston Market was earlier evicted from Howell and Toms River locations for failure to pay rent.
The company faces an $11 million suit by food distributor U.S Foods over unpaid bills, according to another industry news site, Restaurant Dive.
Between 2007 and 2013, Boston Market closed 630 of its 1,000 locations without opening a single store, according to the outlet.
The Labor Department statement said one of the Boston Market employees to raise concerns was Cathy Grimes, who managed 12 workers at a restaurant in East Hanover in Morris County. All went without paychecks, despite "dutifully" going to work every day, the department said.
Grimes praised the state's efforts: "We got all the wages — between us about $15,000. The owner really took notice when the Department of Labor got involved,” she said in the statement.
The locations where the stop-work orders were issued were as followed:

NEW JERSEY — As has become traditional on Veterans Day, several New Jersey restaurants are offering free deals and discounts to veterans and members of the military.
Veterans Day is always Nov. 11, which falls on a Saturday this year. Some of the deals start before or extend beyond the actual holiday.
