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 West New York, 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:

A massive fire in New Jersey sent smoke billowing over New York City Wednesday morning - and as firefighters reined that one in, a second major blaze broke out down the road.
Arson investigators are now looking at both fires, and authorities indicate they're aware a third fire Tuesday night shares some similarities with Wednesday's blazes.
All three fires -- in Plainfield, West New York and Union City -- appear to have affected Hispanic-owned businesses in business districts, though it's not clear yet if they're actually linked in any way.
Chopper 4 was over the scene of the 5-alarm blaze on Bergenline Avenue in West New York early Wednesday. It broke out around 4:30 a.m. and drew a significant response from local fire companies.
By 6 a.m. roofs were collapsing, but by 7 a.m. firefighters had the conflagration largely under control. The row of commercial buildings — including a nail salon, Carvel ice cream store and a barbecue restaurant — that had apartments above them are now inhabitable.
Nonetheless, the smoke was still well evident over the city, as the plume traveled due east across the Hudson River and could be seen over the Upper West Side.
North Hudson fire officials said five businesses were impacted, but everyone in the residential portion of the buildings was evacuated safely. West New York Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez said 11 families were displaced.
Not long after the West New York fire started to settle down, a new blaze broke out, also on Bergenline Avenue in Union City, about 3.5 miles away. That blaze also quickly escalated to multiple alarms.
Chopper 4 was over that scene as well, as thick black smoke blanketed a densely packed neighborhood.
Union City Mayor Brian Stack explained why it took so much effort from dozens of firefighters to put out the flames.
"Very old buildings, all common cocklofts, goes from one to the other very quickly," Stack said.
About 50 people were displaced as a result of the Union City fire.
"These are poor families, the businesses...suffer the most. One of the poorest sections of the city, these are hardworking people just trying to make ends meet, so were gonna try to help them rebuild and stay in Union City," Stack said.
Help came from as far away as Essex County, but it would have been even more challenging if Hudson hadn't become a regional force decades ago.
"We’re very lucky we regionalized 23 years ago and because of that, we have a lot of companies to respond. Triple the amount we would have had in the original fire," said Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue Chief David Donnarumma.
The two fires follow a blaze Tuesday night in Plainfield that devastated a row of businesses.
That 4-alarm blaze tore through at least six stores.

WEST NEW YORK, N.J. - A massive fire destroyed a New Jersey apartment building and left two dozen families homeless Thursday night.
A heavy blanket of smoke lingered over West New York on Friday morning, where only a hollow shell of a four-story apartment complex remains. More than 12 hours after it burst into flames, the remnants of the stubborn fire just refused to quit despite the best efforts of firefighters.
"Seven, 8 p.m., fires was starting to happen in each apartment, each window, and they were trying to kick it down. At 10, I could still see fire from my window," said neighbor Rosemary Urbano.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it originated in the basement of Borinquen Bodega on Madison Street just before 5 p.m. Thursday. Firefighters say it took hours to put out because a ruptured gas line was feeding the flames.
"The problem with gas is even if you extinguish it, now the vapor is going in the building and it can explode if it gets to the source of ignition, so our duty is really just to control the fire and protect exposure," said David Donnarumma of North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue.
The first floor and the roof collapsed, causing one firefighter to fall through a floor to his waist, but he was not injured.
The fire also created a hairy situation for families living inside. Cell phone video shows several of the bodega workers jumping into action to save two children stuck on a fire escape.
Luis Cruz is the bodega owner's brother.
"They went back into the store, even with the fire coming up from the basement. They brought out the ladder and they were able to get the kids off the fire escape," Cruz said.
Twenty-five families were displaced. An additional 16 families were evacuated from nearby homes.
No one were seriously hurt, but families lost all their belongings, and some lost their pets.
"My children called me, tell me there is a fire in the building, my dog is inside," Germania Beltran said.
For 17-year-old Alan Norona, the fire robbed him of his best friend, his 3-year-old Shih-Tzu, Rio.
"He just meant everything to me. I would come back home. It's just me because my parents and my sisters are always working. He's the only one that's with me. I have practices, I come home late and he's the only one with me," Alan told CBS2's Christina Fan.
Families returned Friday to see what they could salvage, but quickly realized the answer was nothing.
"I was just scared because it was my cousin's house, and I was scared for them because most of their belongings stay there, their documents and everything," Urbano said.
"The kids are homeless. It's a sad situation. It's always during the holidays something like that happens," neighbor Danny Mahoney said.
The city of West New York has pledged to cover the cost of hotels for families until Monday. Officials are working with the building's owner to permanently relocate everyone.
The Red Cross is now stepping into help provide emergency financial assistance.

In most municipalities, one person signing a nominating petition counts as one signature. But in West New York, a single resident who signs on for all five candidates counts as five signatures.
When both slates seeking town commission seats in the May non-partisan municipal election inflate their numbers the same way, it’s a wash – unless one side deliberately fudges their numbers to give a false impression of their support.
Take the slate of former Rep. Albio Sires, who is seeking a return to the job he held for 11 years before becoming a congressman in 2006. Sires and each of his four running mates filed with roughly 3,000 signatures – many the same – so his campaign did the math and announced that 15,000 West New York voters signed their petitions.
They knew it wasn’t 15,000 individuals because Team Sires knows how to do West New York arithmetic.
But a ticket headed by his rival for mayor, Cosmo Cirillo, was deliberately deceptive.
Cirillo and each of his running mates filed 500 signatures – 150 more than they were required to file to get on the ballot.
Using West New York arithmetic, that would have been 2,500 signatures. But in a press release, Cirillo’s West New York Forward slate touted that they had “collected more than 12,000 petition signatures from community members of various demographics and socioeconomic levels.”
“The outpouring of support signifies the community’s endorsement of Cosmo’s team for a better West New York,” said Casey Abline, a spokesperson for the campaign.
But that turned out not to be true. When the New Jersey Globe questioned Albine about West New York’s new math, she flipped the inquiry to her boss, Christina Pinzon.
Pinzon had what she thought was a clever, perhaps even technically true answer, mendacious as it was.
“If you look at the release, we said ‘collected,’” she said. “We never said we filed 12,000.”
Cirillo even backed up the fuzzy math claim with his own statement.
“My sincere gratitude goes out to my team, the campaign volunteers, and all of the community members who came out and signed petitions to make running for office possible,” Cirillo stated. “The overflow of support for our team shows unequivocally that our community is prepared for elected officials who will bring about genuine change in West New York.”
A spokesman for the Sires campaign, Phil Swibinski, said that “Cirillo and his team need to come clean with the people of West New York and explain why they said they had obtained 12,000 petitions when only a fraction of that number were actually submitted to the Town Clerk.”
“If the rest of these petitions they say they have gathered actually exist, they should prove it by allowing the media or an independent authority to inspect them,” Swibinski said. “The West New York Forward team is playing games with the people of West New York.”
The New Jersey Globe asked the Cirillo campaign to either release the complete petitions or to allow an independent inspection. They declined.
“They’re not going to release them,” said Laura Gaviria, a third Cirillo spokesperson. “It’s not a requirement to show them you or anyone else.”
Instead, Gaviria said the campaign has another purpose for the unfiled petition.
“They’re going to be using it to knock on doors,” she explained.

WEST NEW YORK, New Jersey (WABC) -- Firefighters worked all night to extinguish flames at a massive fire in West New York that started Thursday evening.
The fire started around 5 p.m. Thursday and engulfed a four-story building that had a small grocery store on the ground level.
Newscopter 7 spotted firefighters at work on the roof of the building.
"I was at the scene of the terrible fire on Madison Street this evening with our Town Construction Official," said Fire Commissioner Cosmo Cirillo. "Outstanding job by our North Hudson Firefighters for containing the situation as much as possible. Everyone was evacuated safely and my thoughts and sentiments are with the displaced families during this difficult time."
Franklin Gomez's family runs the bodega downstairs. They all jumped into action to begin getting people out. About 40 families lived in the building -- close to 100 people.
"My mom runs the store -- we working and smoke starting coming. We saw neighbors screaming for help," said Gomez/
A total of 41 families have been displaced and are receiving assistance from the Red Cross.
The Red Cross says 25 of the affected families live in the building where the fire broke out, the 16 other families live in a building on 55th Street.
The City of West New York is providing the lodging while Red Cross is providing financial support.

Commissioner Cosmo A. Cirillo on Friday night formally announced his intention to run for mayor of West New York along with running mates Assemblywoman Angelica M. Jimenez, Commissioner Margarita Guzman, longtime residents Hiram Gonzalez and Walter Lopez.
West New York Forward.
Cirillo and his running mates will kick-off their campaign with the grand opening of the West New York Forward headquarters at 6317 Hudson Avenue, West New York in New Jersey on Sunday, February 5, 2023, at 12:00 P.M.
Cirillo’s connection to West New York began when his grandparents immigrated with his father to the United States from Italy in 1972 and chose to call West New York their home. His family has lived here ever since. From a young age, Cirillo said he has exhibited a strong passion to serve the community, beginning his journey in government at the ripe age of 16 where he interned for the Town of West New York.
At the age of 20, Cirillo was appointed to the West New York Board of Education where he served for over four years, including two as its president. He has also served as the ABC board secretary and the deputy town clerk for West New York. As town administrator in the nearby Town of Guttenberg, Commissioner Cirillo currently applies his experience in municipal government to focus on senior services and recreation. He is proud to represent the residents of West New York as the youngest individual to become a commissioner within the town, bringing a fresh perspective to local government.
“I’m a lifelong resident with deep roots in the community and I possess a strong sense of governmental experience that I plan to employ when elected mayor,” Commissioner Cirillo stated. “I am an active community leader with a strong track record of delivering on the promises I have made. As mayor, I want to continue fulfilling those promises by working with my colleagues to improve our community, build recreation systems that will offer quality family activities, and expand resources to support our diverse business community.”
Running for commissioner is Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez, who is serving her sixth term in the State of New Jersey General Assembly. She serves as chair of the Human Services Committee, vice-chair of the Housing Committee, and on the Health Committee. Since taking office Assemblywoman Jimenez’ impact as a legislator has been felt statewide. She has been an advocate for New Jersey families, spearheading important bills on education and immigration, such as bill A-4743, which supports driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Commissioner Margarita Guzman is running for re-election. She has a passion for education and public service stemming from a family rooted in educators and lawyers. Commissioner for the Housing Authority, and then as the vice chairwoman for the Hudson County Democratic Organization, Commissioner Guzman brings a wealth of experience and understanding in municipal government and redevelopment.
Also joining Cirillo’s slate in West New York is longtime resident Hiram Gonzalez, a former sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. After serving the country for five and a half years, Gonzalez received a bachelor’s degree in accounting and worked as finance manager for the National Football League (NFL) and later on as assistant director for Columbia University, College of Dental Medicine. Currently, he is the assistant finance director for the Town of Guttenberg.
Building on the experience of his running mates, Walter Lopez pledges to use his experience as the former director of redevelopment for the West New York Housing Authority to help identify pragmatic solutions that will combat homelessness while ensuring the safety of senior citizens and families living in the buildings. He is currently working as a code enforcement officer and housing inspector for the town with a focus on making sure its residents are in a healthy and safe environment.
Pillars of West New York Forward include:
“I want to be the type of mayor that people can relate to and feel at ease when voicing their concerns,” concluded Cirillo. “Under my leadership, we will work together to move West New York forward and show the state what our small but vibrant town has to offer.”
