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 Ridgewood, 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:

BERGEN COUNTY, NJ — Teaneck-based chef Shalom Yehudiel, known for appearing on TV's "Chopped," has been arrested again on charges of sexually assaulting a minor, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office announced Tuesday.
The arrest of the restaurant owner on Monday was the result of a new indictment on Thursday, Aug. 31, according to the office of Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella.
The case against Yehudiel, 41, has wound through the courts since early 2022.
That year, the chef was arrested on charges of having assaulted a 16-year-old girl on multiple occasions.
Last month, the case was dismissed with prejudice due to a technicality, the Bergen Record reported.
But the next day, Aug. 8, 2023, Yehudiel was arrested again at Newark airport while trying to head to Thailand, reports said. Yehudiel was incarcerated on Riker's Island.
Days later, he was attacked in jail, said his lawyer in mid-August, in a plea to have him released.
A week after his arrest, he was released, pending a trial.
Then, on Aug. 31, according to the Prosecutor's Office, Yehudiel was indicted by a Bergen County Grand Jury on charges of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Yehudiel was arrested Monday in Aventura, Fla., on those charges, the Prosecutor's Office said in a release Tuesday morning.
Prosecutors said that on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021, the FBI contacted the the prosecutor's Special Victims Unit regarding the alleged sexual assault of a child in Teaneck on more than one occasion. An investigation by prosecutors and the New York office of the FBI resulted in the charges.
Yehudiel now awaits his first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
Prosecutors did not release further information.
In a statement to the Bergen Record on Tuesday, Yehudiel's attorneys, Lee Vartan and Zach Intrater, said, "The state has just recycled the same flawed indictment with the same factual and legal holes."
However, a now-adult woman came forward last month to say that she was a victim of Yehudiel as a teenager.
She gave an interview to the Jewish Standard, saying she wants to give a face victims and prevent such a thing from happening again.
She said that she met Yehudiel in her congregation in Fair Lawn when she was 14.
She said, "I was very naive. I was sort of confident by default, because I didn’t know much about the world ... My mother told me that she was surprised this happened to me because when I was a kid I was extremely outgoing. I was the kid who tried to have a lot of friends.
"What my mom did not realize was that this confidence was effective only if people my own age were mean to me. But if someone 36 years old was crossing boundaries, I didn’t know what to do."
Yehudiel owns the Humble Toast and La Cucina Di Nava in Teaneck.
Victims have filed more than one civil suit against him for sexual abuse. The suits were made public starting in 2021 by Za’akah, an organization that fights sexual abuse in the Jewish community, according to a story in The Standard.

ALLENDALE − Northern Highlands enjoyed a big bounce-back thanks to “Little Schmo” and friends.
Less than a week after falling to Old Tappan, the Highlanders rolled past Ridgewood, 35-7, in Thursday’s Super Football Conference cross-divisional game.
Danny Smiechowski caught a 38-yard pass to get Northern Highlands into the red zone on the second play of the night, and he capped a 28-0 first quarter with a 1-yard touchdown reception from Nate Johnson.
Coach Dave Cord called out, “Hey, Schmo!” to get Smiechowski’s attention afterward – that’s actually a term of endearment to the senior from Upper Saddle River.
“It started with my grandpa,” said the tight end/linebacker, whose last name is pronounced, “schma-HOW-ski”.
“He was ‘Schmo’, my dad was ‘Schmo’, my brother was ‘Schmo’, and I was a ‘Little Schmo’ growing up. And now I’m just ‘Schmo’.”
The Highlanders (3-1) looked like anything but, once again showing the form that helped them reach last year’s Group 4 championship final.
The result was a far cry from last year’s meeting, a 7-6 Maroon victory in Ridgewood. Since then, Northern Highlands has won 11-of-14, and two of its three losses in that span have come against 2022 NJSIAA champions (Group 4 Millville and Group 3 Old Tappan).
“We’ve got to bounce back,” Smiechowski said. “We’re tired of losing. It’s been four years in a row, we’re tired of coming up short. And we just want to finish the job this year.”
Ridgewood (1-2) has dropped two straight and lost two players to injury in the second quarter, QB Hudson Feeney and left tackle Peter McHugh. Coach Torre Watson said that both sustained ankle injuries.
Northern Highlands had four touchdowns before the visitors recorded a first down, as a fumbled kick return and a bad punt snap were among the early miscues that doomed the visitors.
Factor in 75 yards in kick/punt returns by Matthew Boydell, and the Highlanders’ average starting field position for their first four drives was the Ridgewood 33.
Johnson cashed in with two touchdown passes and two scoring runs, and Cole Stecker made it 35-0 on a 13-yard touchdown run with 8:28 left in the second quarter.
? Smiechowski made 3 catches for 46 yards and a TD and added 5 tackles on defense.
? Johnson completed 7-of-8 passes for 106 yards and rushed 5 times for 38 yards.
? Charlie Merrick (6 catches, 68 yards) caught a 15-yard TD from backup Gavin McCrone in the fourth quarter to help Ridgewood avert the shutout. Merrick also made five tackles.
“We had a pretty hard loss last week, and we knew we had to change our mindset from the start. We all knew we had to put in some more work in the practice week, and even with a short week and all… we had lots of excuses we could have made, but we all put in the work, we all changed our mindset, and it showed.” − Smiechowski
“I thought we came out flat against a super talented, really good Old Tappan team. And in a short week, our plan was to keep the playbook thin on both sides and play fast and physical, and that’s exactly what they did.” − Cord

RIDGEWOOD − Clifton coach Ralph Cinque wore his “Rocky III” T-shirt for Friday night’s Super Football Conference game at Ridgewood.
“It’s symbolic,” Cinque said. “Ridgewood is always on top. And through the years, we’ve played some stinkers against them, and we’ve played some real good ones. Tonight was a good one.”
That was the consensus on the Clifton sideline after a 28-21 victory that featured a big play to punctuate each half.
Mustangs quarterback Romelo Tables snapped a 14-all tie with a 37-yard, tackle-breaking touchdown as the second quarter expired. Senior cornerback Alexander Franco then intercepted the Maroons’ deep pass with 43.7 seconds remaining in the fourth.
“It came down to intestinal fortitude,” Cinque said. “That was the word of the day before the game – fortitude… we were in adverse situations, and we just kept swinging. We were never down, we were never out.”
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
Each team has won a Group 5 sectional title within the past five seasons, and this win gives Clifton (2-1) a big boost going forward, both mentally and in power points. The Mustangs have won two straight since an opening loss to Montclair and host Eastside next Friday.
Ridgewood (1-1), meanwhile, has a short week to prepare for a Thursday game against 2022 Group 4 finalist Northern Highlands.
“We don’t have time to feel sorry for ourselves,” Maroons coach Torre Watson said. “We’ve got no time to do anything but improve.”
The Mustangs had an answer for every Ridgewood touchdown. Trailing 7-0 after the opening drive, they got a 43-yard TD run from Devon Stroble late in the first quarter.
After Ridgewood scored with 48.2 seconds to go in the half, Nate Ceneri returned the ensuing kickoff 68 yards to help set up Tables’ tiebreaking run.
“I looked downfield and saw green grass, so I just took off,” the junior QB said. “My teammates pushed me in. If it weren’t for the team, I would’ve been stopped at the 5-yard line.”
Tables also threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Ceneri with 14.4 seconds left in the third quarter to provide the final margin.
? Stroble carried 20 times for 128 yards and a pair of scores, while Tables ran 11 times for 77 yards and completed 6-of-8 passes for 64 yards.
? Franco finished with five tackles and the sealing INT, while David Chavez led the Clifton defense with 10 tackles.
? Ridgewood’s Colin Lake was Mr. Versatile: 7 carries for 46 yards and a TD, 2 kick returns for 41 yards, plus a blocked punt that he recovered to set up the first of two TD runs by Bobby Kuenzler (12 carries, 80 yards).
“I saw the receiver run full speed [and] try to come over the top. I read him good, I read the ball, and it just came and fell in my hands – got the game-winning pick.” − Franco
