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 Paramus, 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:

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio – Greg Russo wanted to hug every Paramus Catholic hero. It took him a while.
Boosted by a gutsy onside kick call, the Paladins scored three touchdowns in a three-minute span of the fourth quarter, then made two big defensive stands to come back and beat Cleveland Heights, 43-41, Saturday afternoon on the road.
“For a first game, if you could script it for a good year, this would be it,” Russo said. “The fact that they came back and roared back into the game, a lot of kids on this type of trip will hang their heads. They rallied back hard. The kids that make mistakes earlier made huge plays to win the game.”
Making his first start under center, junior transfer Crew Colon threw for 311 yards and two scores, but he also threw a pick six to John Gordon Jr. of Cleveland Heights who ran it back 92 yards to make the score 35-22 for the Tigers early in the fourth quarter.
“Massey ran the wrong route,” Russo said with a little smile.
Kenyon Massey made up for it in a big way, hauling in a 55-yard TD pass from Colon two plays later to make it 35-29.
“I misheard the play,” said the Paladins junior wideout sheepishly. “But we made up for it and we didn’t let it bring us down.”
Then Russo and special teams coach Blake Costanzo called for an onside kick by Laszlo Horog that bounced off several players before being cradled by Paladins linebacker Macai Moore. Colon then found Achylles DuPont on a short pass and he went 46 yards to the end zone. It was two touchdowns in 18 seconds and changed the game.
“The onside kick just got everyone going,” said Massey. “It gave us the momentum we needed to finish the game.”
DuPont would score again on a 42-yard run on the Paladins next drive, and Adrian Laing would grab an interception with 2:30 left to seal it.
“In Year One it's hard with games like this, you take a lot of punches and it's hard to respond,” said Russo, in his second year at the helm. “When you’ve won a bunch and take some punches, you’re confident in your coaches and that you can counter. Our kids feel like we can counter.”
Let’s not jump on the Paladins bandwagon just yet, even though it is the first time the football team has had a winning record since they started 3-0 in 2019. The defense was both good and bad, but Russo’s point about being a long way from home facing adversity and overcoming it is a good start.
Cleveland Heights (1-1) was good, but it remains to be seen if the Paladins can compete against their Big Six rivals just yet.
DuPont had a monster game with 20 carries for 194 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He also caught two passes for 66 yards and a score.
Massey led all receivers with eight catches for 193 yards and a touchdown.
Cleveland Heights star running back Marquise Davis had 201 yards on 15 carries.
Between the pick six and the onside kick, Cleveland Heights only ran 15 offensive plays in the second half.
“We fought through adversity, we are here to let the Big North know we are back for sure,” Massey said.

Barnes & Noble has found a new home in Paramus to replace the popular store it will be closing this month after almost 30 years.
The bookseller announced Tuesday that it will be moving into the space currently occupied by Big Lots! at 634 Route 17 north. The spot, formerly home to a Toys R Us, is a little over a mile down the highway from the bookstore's current location at 765 Route 17 south.
“While we are sad to leave this location, we are excited for our next chapter!” the chain announced in a brief Facebook post Tuesday morning. “Please follow us and we will see you at the new store's opening!”
The post didn't mention any timing for the opening, and a company spokesperson didn't immediately respond to a message Tuesday.
The chain will close its current Paramus store, which it's operated since 1995, on March 18. The nonprofit New Concepts for Living will take over the location, with what it says will be a state-of-the-art "achievement center” for adults with disabilities. The center will eventually serve 200 clients.
Since announcing the closure, Barnes & Noble has offered massive sales at its popular Paramus site, including 50% off all books, 40% off all magazines and 75% off all toys, games, gifts and book annex products. The last day for the store café will be this Saturday.
The Paramus site is no longer accepting used book donations.
Barnes & Noble previously said its landlord was not renewing the company's lease on Route 17. New Concepts for Living is expecting a fall opening for its center, which it says will be “significantly larger" than its current operation in Rochelle Park.

PARAMUS, NJ - The public school district hired a new athletic director this summer with a renewed focus.
Derek England, a Paramus resident, will take over the position as of November 20, 2023.
"The appointment of Mr. England, who rose to the top of a deep pool of candidates, follows a rigorous selection process involving multiple stakeholders across our school community," Superintendent Sean Adams said. "His approach utilizes an innovative leadership style that has cultivated a culture of excellence, sportsmanship, and inclusivity within school athletics."

Adams said there was a recent job description change, which was "due to an administrative restructuring."
The change had no effect on the budget, Adams said.
"Due to the high level of importance athletics plays in the physical, emotional, and academic development of students, we wanted to have a position devoted entirely to the growth and development of our program, student athletes, and community collaboration," Adams said.
Adams said the goal of the position is to "elevate the overall performance and reputation of the athletic department through innovative leadership, cultivating a culture of excellence, sportsmanship, and inclusivity to ensure all students are afforded opportunities to explore their interests and talents through a variety of athletic experiences that enrich the student experience and promote a positive culture built upon teamwork, skill development, and a commitment to excellence.
"Success in meeting this goal will require the position's undivided attention," he said. "Since oversight of the physical education/health department is being incorporated into existing supervisory positions, there are no budget or salary implications."
Adams said England has an extensive background in education and athletics. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Columbia University, a Master of Education from Columbia University, and a Master of Administration and Supervision from Saint Peter’s College.
He has more than 25 years of education experience, evenly split between classroom instruction and administration, most recently serving as the Director of Athletics for Watchung Hills Regional High School.
Previously, England served as the Director of Athletics at Hoboken High School for nine years, and brings extensive coaching experience at both the high school and collegiate levels, including nearly a decade as Head Baseball Coach at the NCAA Division I level. His record-setting coaching career earned him numerous accolades, including most recently being named a Saint Peter’s College 2022 Hall of Fame inductee.
Throughout his career, Adams said, England has displayed a high level of expertise in school athletics leadership, including operations, program development, student-athlete growth, and supervision/evaluation.
"As a Paramus resident himself, and a parent of two Paramus High School graduates, England takes great pride in the athletic and academic opportunities afforded to his children during their time as students in the Paramus schools, and is eager to collaborate with the students, coaches, staff, and families within the Paramus school community on ensuring that the athletic program continues to grow, thrive, and promote both athletic and academic excellence," Adams said.
"As he says, “I’ve been fortunate to have worked in two districts that have given me an opportunity to grow as a professional, and I’m excited to bring everything I’ve learned to the community I’m lucky to call home.”

PARAMUS — A new Bergen County career and technical school will open to students in 2025 with the help of a state grant.
The county on Tuesday held the official groundbreaking ceremony for the school, which will be built behind the Bergen County Technical Schools Paramus campus on Pascack Road and eventually will be connected to share a gymnasium.
The "career innovation" high school will consist of programs that focus on future careers that have a high wage and high demand, Bergen County Technical School District Superintendent Howard Lerner said.
The school will welcome its first ninth grade class in September 2025 and will eventually hold about 260 students, Lerner said. It will feature career pathway programs in dental assistance, design and fabrication, supply chain management and logistics.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Lerner said about the state's funding 75% of the cost to build the school.
The Securing Our Children's Future grant will provide about $26 million toward the school and the county will be responsible for the rest, which adds up to about $8.6 million.
"This new school will be a milestone project for our Technical School District and the county of Bergen as a whole," County Executive James Tedesco said. "As we look to the future of what education should be, it is critical to anticipate the needs not just in education, but in the workforce. That is what career and technical education does."
Across the five high schools in the Bergen County system, there are currently 35 career technical programs offered. Lerner said that when deciding on the three new programs, officials looked at the economy and the future of jobs and surveyed eighth graders across the county to gauge interest levels.
Along with the hands-on training programs, career-specific labs and academic instruction, the programs offer partnerships with local businesses and Bergen Community College, Lerner said. The partnerships allow direct internships, mentoring and site visits.
The curriculum will provide students with skills to directly enter the workforce or pursue additional educational opportunities, be it through a trade apprenticeship, a two-year school like Bergen Community College or a four-year university, Tedesco said.
"This new career technical education school is about supporting alternative paths and building a more inclusive education system that has something for every single student, all while helping ensure Bergen County remains competitive in the 21st-century global economy," Tedesco said.
Last October, state lawmakers also advanced bills that promote and create job opportunities for high school and college students in manufacturing and skill-based jobs to address workforce shortages in New Jersey.
The Manufacturing in Higher Education Act calls for state entities to work with the business community to design manufacturing career pathways that will be implemented through county colleges and vocational and technical schools.
New Jersey had an average of 244,000 manufacturing employees in 2020, with an average annual compensation of $97,281 in 2019, according to the National Association of Manufacturers, a lobbying group that advocates for the industry.
