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 Rockleigh, 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 HEALTH CARE CENTER TO CLOSE BY END OF 2021
County to ensure seamless transition for residents and employment options for staff
HACKENSACK, N.J. – The County of Bergen announced today that the Bergen County Health Care Center (BCHCC) in Rockleigh will permanently close by the end of 2021, citing a series of factors. The County will consolidate its in-patient health care services into one facility for residents by providing long-term care at the centrally located Bergen New Bridge Medical Center (Paramus) facility, which also provides immediate access to acute care services as well as pharmacy, diagnostic, hearing, and dental services.
The BCHCC has maintained a decades-long reputation of providing exemplary skilled-nursing care to the long-term care community, and over the years, BCHCC’s services have received national and statewide recognition. Due to new and emerging trends in long-term living, inadequate reimbursement, fixed overhead costs, a shift toward home or community-based care, outdated infrastructure along with the COVID-19 pandemic, the current occupancy is less than 50 percent of the 110-bed capacity. With diminishing census but fixed overhead, operation of the facility has become less cost-effective, and continued operation of the facility is no longer in the best interests of the long-term care community or County residents. Over the last five years, BCHCC has continued to experience a gradual decline in residents, and in addition, the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis revealed that immediate access to acute care services will better serve long-term care residents.
The County is focused on ensuring a smooth transition for residents and staff and is offering numerous options to avoid any reduction in workforce due to the closure, including securing new positions at the County Health Department or Bergen New Bridge Medical Center. To facilitate the transition for residents and their families, the County is going well beyond the state-required 60-day notification period and is providing residents and families with plenty of time to plan a transition. The County has provided residents the ability to stay within the County network of long-term care facilities and seamlessly relocate to Bergen New Bridge Medical Center (Paramus), where they will have immediate access to acute care services. The County will also work with residents and their families to provide information and assistance in finding an alternative arrangement that suits their needs. County representatives are coordinating every step of the transition effort with state regulatory authorities.
“The County of Bergen is dedicated to ensuring a seamless transition for Bergen County Health Care Center’s residents as we work to consolidate the County’s in-patient health care services,” said County Administrator Tom Duch. “Over the next few months, we will be working closely with residents and their families to provide information and assistance during this transition so they can continue receiving the high-quality, compassionate care they have come to know in a centrally located, acute care setting. We owe a debt of gratitude to our nationally recognized staff who are true healthcare heroes, working tirelessly each day to create an at-home, individualized experience for residents. We are grateful for everything they are doing to keep residents healthy and safe and look forward to working with each of our valued employees to find options for employment at other healthcare facilities.”
In the coming weeks and months, BCHCC will be holding meetings with residents, employees, and other key stakeholders to help answer questions and assist with the transition. For more information visit: www.co.bergen.nj.us/health-care-center.

Big Sky Medical has acquired the Spectra Labs building, a 204,500-square-foot office/life science facility in Rockleigh, N.J. The investment manager purchased the asset, which is fully leased to Spectra Laboratories, from Spruce Healthcare Group for an undisclosed amount.
A CBRE U.S. Healthcare and Life Sciences Capital Markets team comprising Lee Asher, Jordan Selbiger, Cole Reethof, Josiah Gunter, Zack Holderman, Jeremy Neuer and Jeffrey Dunne served as the exclusive advisor to the seller, and it was a déjà vu experience for some involved. A few of the CBRE team members had represented Marcus Partners when it sold Spectra Labs to Charter Realty Group, a related entity of Spruce Healthcare Group, for $40 million in a 1031 exchange in 2016.
Located on nearly 7 acres at the midpoint of the Boston-to-Washington, D.C., corridor, Spectra Labs sits about 25 miles from New York City in Bergen County, N.J. The two-story building welcomed its first tenant in 1977 but has since evolved into a modern mixed-use office destination featuring 54 percent state-of-the-art lab space. In 2015, the property benefited from a two-year, $49.7 million redevelopment that increased its size to accommodate the 15-year lease expansion that Spectra Laboratories had signed in 2013.
CBRE didn’t comment on the investor competition for the asset; however, the life science sector in New Jersey is hot property due to robust demand among tenants. “New Jersey’s life science market has seen rapid growth from emerging pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies,” according to a first quarter 2022 report by Colliers. “The market for move-in-ready lab space remains tight amid the growth of small and mid-sized life science firms during the year. Despite the lack of available laboratory space in the market, the construction market has been somewhat limited by the lengthy approval process and the high cost of construction.”
Big Sky launched in 2020 and has since made quite a splash. Most recently, the Dallas-based investment manager turned heads in the industry with the April 2022 announcement of the formation of a $1 billion joint venture with an off-shore institutional investor for the purpose of acquiring medical office buildings and surgery centers across the U.S. Big Sky seeded the new investment vehicle with a $400 million MOB portfolio that it had amassed over a 12-month period.
Among Big Sky’s transactions since the joint venture news emerged is the closing of the purchase of a 111,800-square-foot medical office portfolio in suburban Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wis. The company acquired the four-building collection of MOBs from Stage Equity Partners, having emerged victorious in a highly competitive process.

Special to NorthJersey.com
HIKING: Rockleigh Woods Sanctuary and Lamont Reserve
FEATURES: This hike loops around this preserve, on the western slope of the Palisades, climbing a scenic ravine and passing two old stone cisterns and the historic Lamont Rock.
LENGTH: About 2.4 miles.
TIME: About one and one-half hours.
MAP: New York-New Jersey Trail Conference Hudson-Palisades Trails Map #109; preserve map available online at www.nynjtc.org.
DOGS: Permitted on leash.
HOW TO GET THERE: Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway to Exit 4. Turn left at the bottom of the ramp onto Route 9W (if coming from the north, turn right onto Route 9W) and proceed for 1.1 miles, entering New York. At the next traffic light, turn left onto Oak Tree Road and, in 0.2 mile, turn left onto Closter Road. In 0.5 mile, after crossing under the Parkway, you reenter New Jersey, and the road becomes Rockleigh Road. Continue for another 0.2 mile to the Rockleigh Municipal Building (26 Rockleigh Road) and turn left into the driveway. Park in the rear of the building.
DESCRIPTION: This hike traverses two preserved tracts on the western slope of the Palisades – the 84-acre Rockleigh Woods Sanctuary, located in the Borough of Rockleigh, which purchased it in 1975, and the 134-acre Lamont Reserve, located in the Borough of Alpine, and purchased jointly by the County of Bergen, the Borough of Alpine and the Borough of Rockleigh in 1996. Both tracts were formerly part of Camp Alpine of the Greater New York Councils, Boy Scouts of America.
From the parking area, follow a handicapped-accessible path to a playground, where three blue blazes on a fence post mark the start of the Hutcheon Trail. Follow this blue-blazed trail past a “Green Acres” sign into the woods.
In a short distance, you’ll notice a triple yellow blaze on a tree to the right. Turn right and follow the yellow-blazed Sneden-Haring Trail, which heads south, closely paralleling the sanctuary boundary. Continue to follow this trail as it turns right and descends to cross a brook on a culvert. To the right is the site of the former Sneden Ice Pond (now a wetland). Just beyond, the trail turns left at a signpost.
As the trail approaches the wide Roaring Brook, the blue-blazed Hutcheon Trail joins from the left, and both trails cross the brook on rocks. On the other side, proceed ahead, following the blue blazes, which parallel the brook. Soon, you’ll notice a triple-orange blaze, which marks the start of the Brook Connector Trail, on a tree to the left. Turn left and follow this trail, which continues to parallel the scenic Roaring Brook, with views of the brook below (when the water is high, there are attractive cascades in the brook).
After climbing along the brook for a quarter mile, the Brook Connector Trail ends at a junction with the white-blazed Lamont Rock Trail. Turn right onto this trail, which descends briefly, then bears left, crosses an old, eroded woods road and passes by an area with many trees toppled during Hurricane Sandy. After descending some more, the Lamont Rock Trail is joined by the blue-blazed Hutcheon Trail.
Just ahead, the Hutcheon Trail ends, and the yellow-blazed Sneden-Haring-Lamont Trail joins from the right. In 50 feet, where the two trails diverge, turn left and continue to follow the white blazes.
The Lamont Rock Trail now climbs steadily, soon passing two old stone cisterns. It continues to climb to Lamont Rock (a huge boulder), on the left. Just beyond, the white trail turns left and is joined by the Red Circle Trail of Camp Alpine, Greater New York Councils, Boy Scouts of America. Follow the joint white and red trails as they climb on a footpath to the highest point in the preserve (480 feet), from where the Hudson River can be seen through the trees during leaf-off season.
The joint trails now begin to descend. Soon, the Red Circle Trail leaves to the right, but you should turn left and continue along the white-blazed Lamont Rock Trail. In about 0.2 mile, the yellow-blazed Sneden-Haring-Lamont Trail joins from the left.
Just ahead, you’ll come to a wide woods road. Turn left onto the road. The white-blazed Lamont Rock Trail immediately leaves to the left, but you should continue along the road (the route of the yellow-blazed trail) and cross Roaring Brook on rocks.
A short distance beyond, turn left onto the red-blazed Roaring Brook Trail and follow it as it descends along the north side of the brook. At the base of the descent, the Roaring Brook Trail ends at a junction with the blue-blazed Hutcheon Trail. Turn right onto the blue-blazed trail, which descends gradually, crossing a stone bridge over a brook, and follow it back to the parking area where the hike began.

In a recent study, we analyzed and identified the richest cities in New York state based on scoring several key financial factors. This time around, we’re looking at New York’s neighbor to the south — New Jersey, the Garden State.
We analyzed over 700 cities in the state in order to identify the richest cities in New Jersey. The way we evaluated and scored each city’s ranking is detailed below. Read on to find out what the richest city in New Jersey is, plus the top 50 wealthiest cities in the state overall.
In order to assemble a list of the richest cities in New Jersey, we pulled data from the Census Bureau’s 2021 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, and we constructed a four-factor scoring system to help identify the wealthiest cities in New Jersey:
When it comes to Census data, for certain factors its numbers have upper limits. For example, for median household income, the Census Bureau has an upper limit of “$250,000+”. For median home value, the upper limit is “$2,000,000+”. And, lastly, for median property taxes paid, the upper limit is “$10,000+”. For these reasons, the mean or average household income dataset is crucial because the Census Bureau has exact figures for it. All four of these metrics were scored, added up, and then ranked by the cities’ combined scores.
Below you’ll find a table detailing the top 50 richest cities in New Jersey and their respective dollar figures for each metric:
The No. 1 richest city in New Jersey in our ranking is Rockleigh, a very small town of just 74 households, situated in the far north of the Garden State, along the border with New York state. It borders Palisades, New York, whose name comes from the steep cliffs of the eastern bank of the Hudson River, which resemble palisades. Not surprisingly for the richest city in New Jersey, according to Data USA, the main occupation by employment is Management Occupations, accounting for 31.5% of the workforce. The top three industries in Rockleigh are Health Care & Social Assistance (21.3% of the workforce), Professional, Scientific, & Technical Services (20.4% of the workforce), and Construction (10.2% of the workforce). The median household income in Rockleigh is $201,500, while its average household income is the second highest out of the 700+ cities in New York we analyzed, at $413,309. The reported median home value in Rockleigh exceeds $2 million and the median property taxes paid by households is in excess of $10,000 per year.
The second richest city in New Jersey is Saddle River, which, like Rockleigh, is located in Bergen County, not far from New York state. What is particular cool about Saddle River is that it has retained a very rustic, natural appearance, filled with forests, rivers, and farmland. The median home value in Saddle River is a little over $1.94 million, and its median property taxes paid exceeds the limit of $10,000. Similarly, the median household income in Saddle River also exceeds the $250,000 Census Bureau limit. Saddle River has an average household income of $330,303 and is notably much larger than No. 1 Rockleigh, having more than 1,300 total households. Compared to some of the other richest cities in New Jersey, the top industries in Saddle River are an interesting mix: Health Care & Social Assistance (20.2% of the workforce), Wholesale Trade (11.1% of the workforce), and Professional, Scientific, & Technical Services (10.4% of the workforce), according to Data USA.
Coming in as the No. 3 richest city in New Jersey is Short Hills, a sizable unincorporated community of more than 4,500 households, located in Essex County, which is notably the county with the highest income inequality in New Jersey. Like Saddle River, the median household income in Short Hills is over $250,000 and the median property taxes paid also exceeds the Census Bureau’s upper limit of $10,000. Short Hills stands out the most by having the highest average household income in New Jersey, at $428,352. Meanwhile, its reported median home value is nearly $1.39 million.
Out of the top 50 richest cities in New Jersey, the largest is Westfield, which has 10,514 households. Westfield, like many of the wealthiest cities in New Jersey, is in the New York City metro area, located in Union County. The median household income in Westfield is $185,319, while its mean household income is $259,377. Although its median home value is only $810,400, the median property taxes paid in Westfield still exceeds $10,000 because New Jersey has notoriously high property tax rates.
