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 New Milford, 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:

Inflationary pressures were the biggest reason behind a bump in proposed state funding in the 2023-24 fiscal year for many North Jersey school districts.
Statewide, the Murphy administration proposed a total increase of $832 million in K-12 funding, according to figures released recently by the Department of Education. That would lift total state aid for the state's 600-odd school districts to a combined $10.7 billion, putting the Murphy administration closer to its goal of "fully funding" the state’s public schools by 2025, experts say.
It's important not to jump to conclusions just because one district saw big gains while another lost aid. What ultimately affects a school is its operating budget and how much of it is derived from local taxes.
"It is difficult to assess the relative impact on districts when calculating the percentage change just in terms of state aid," said school funding expert Danielle Farrie of the Education Law Center, an advocate for fair funding. "A large percentage loss of state aid in a district that is funded primarily through local funding is very different from a large percentage loss in a district that is predominantly funded through state aid. It is more instructive to look at the changes relative to each district’s operating budget."

Districts that are unable to raise the revenue they need from local property taxes — while continuing to deal with drops in state aid — feel the burden the most. Declines in state aid are usually linked to falling enrollment.
The state needs to pay attention to those districts, because they will be spending below what is considered an adequate rate per student and would likely face painful cuts to "classroom staff, social-emotional supports and other essential programs," Farrie said.
"The aid numbers may have been more unpredictable this year due to the impact of inflation and property values on how aid is calculated," Farrie said. "Some districts may have received more than they were expecting, and others much less. We are concerned about some districts’ ability to absorb these cuts, especially those spending below the formula’s adequacy target."
Bergen County districts saw some big gains, with around a 55% increase in aid over the previous year for Ridgefield and a 44% increase for Cliffside Park. All 75 Bergen school districts saw gains in state K-12 aid for fiscal year 2023-24 compared with the previous year, except three: Rockleigh, Waldwick and New Milford. New Milford saw a drop of around 13%.
Passaic County saw some significant proposed gains in state school aid. Woodland Park gained 68% and Passaic Valley Regional gained 40% compared with last year. Five of Passaic county's 20 school districts saw drops in aid. Lakeland Regional and West Milford Township lost 27% and 17.6%, respectively.
Morris County's Boonton Town and Morris Hills Regional saw gains of around 33% each. Five of Morris county's 39 school districts saw a drop in state aid this year. The biggest losers were Washington Township and Jefferson Township, at around 11% and 23%, respectively.
In a continuing trend, the North Jersey county to lose the most aid is Sussex, where rural districts reportedly have seen enrollment drops. Some 12 of the county's 25 districts lost aid compared with the previous year. Hopatcong lost 28%. Kittatinny Regional lost 23%. Green Township and Stillwater Township each lost around 22%.
Sussex County's Sandyston-Walpack Township and Newton saw the biggest gains from the previous year, up 32% and 21% in aid.
Sussex County has consistently seen annual drops in aid, except this year, when it increased by around 2%.

New Milford has the opportunity to reap the benefits from two seasons of playing so many underclassmen.
The Knights return almost every starter to a junior-heavy team that was 1-7 last season and won a combined three games over the past two seasons.
“The kids got thrown into the fire,” Don Jaconia said as he enters his third season as coach, “but they should be the better for it, because we have a lot of experience coming back.”
New Milford graduated only one key two-way starter and will be considerably more competitive with a 40-player program that features 15 juniors and seven seniors. The Knights learned valuable lessons, gained valuable experience with their youth movement.
“Internally, our team has embraced it, and knows that it’s a process, and you don’t build a program overnight,” Jaconia said. “We were in a situation where we had to put some young players out on the field against varsity football teams, maybe before they were ready.
"But now they have that experience, and the kids have a great attitude and come to work every day and keep getting better and better, and I think we’re going to start to see that pay off.”
New Milford has won two sectional titles since the NJSIAA introduced sectional playoffs in 1974. In 1985 and 1986, the Knights captured back-to-back North 1, Group 1 titles with victories over Hasbrouck Heights.
Jaconia succeeded longtime coach Bill Wilde in 2021 and is 3-14 over his first two seasons. The Knights’ last playoff win came in 2019, when they beat Hoboken, 15-14, in a North 2, Group 1 opener.
The offense must control the ball and clock and produce multiple touchdowns each game, one season after being held to one score or fewer five times.
Junior Jerzey Ryan returns to quarterback the multiple attack. He will have veteran receivers in juniors Giovanni Nicodeme and Kyle Tennant and senior Yandel Mateo.
Jaconia says the team is also putting a "renewed emphasis on the run game this year."
STATE OF THE PROGRAM:Inside look at every HS football team in North Jersey
New Milford will compete for multiple wins in the small-school NJIC, but how many depends on how well its 3-4 defense performs. The Knights allowed 27 or more points six times last season.
“We expect to be better across the board and be more competitive in all phases,” Jaconia said. “We’re looking to make plays and get stops defensively, just play some tough, hard-nosed football, and hopefully good things happen.”

The monster coastal storm that battered New Jersey with fierce winds and heavy downpours Sunday night into Monday morning isn’t finished yet. But it already has dumped as much as 4 inches of rain — a whole month’s worth — in some areas of the state.
All that water arrived just one week after another storm dropped 2 to 4 inches of rain across the region, along with a quick burst of snow in a few northern counties.
Here’s a look at rainfall totals reported as of early Monday morning from the latest storm. (These totals will be updated later Monday when new reports become available. Some towns are listed more than once, because the numbers came from different weather monitoring stations in the same town.)

WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- Firefighters are making progress against a fire that has been burning in Passaic County for days.
Saturday, officials said the Kanouse fire in West Milford is 100 percent contained.
The fire burned 972 acres, and five buildings in the area were evacuated as a precaution.
Echo Lake Road remained closed Saturday between Route 23 and Macopin Road due to weakened and dead trees along the road. Forest Fire Service crews will remain on scene to monitor the area and improve containment lines.
The cause of the wildfire remains under investigation.
Thursday night, firefighters converged in the woods in West Milford, right behind Michael Ryan's home near Sherwood Court, where the fire continued to smolder.
"What they're doing now is going through the woods here, and just putting out some of the remaining fires. They did a controlled burn the other day, so they're going through it, and it seems they have it under control now, which is great," West Milford resident Michael Ryan said.
Overnight Thursday, flames peeked through the trees in the night sky.
"We're actively monitoring, and trying to stay strong here. Should we need to leave, we're ready to go," resident Andrew Mancini said. "Obviously if we need to pack up and go - it's all sentimental items. things that can't be replaced. Family photos, heirlooms."
Firefighters worked around the clock in 24-hour shifts to attack the fire from every angle.
"Really glad to see what they're doing. They're just doing such a great job protecting the community," Ryan said.
Firefighters were using helicopters to drop water on the forest.
"We have great confidence in our control lines. We will continue to mop up, patrol, cut down any dead trees," said Greg McLaughlin of the New Jersey Forest Fire Service.
Officials said they faced a serious situation overnight Thursday, including embers flying and starting new fires. They said warm temperatures, dry vegetation and dying trees infested with bugs fueled the blaze.
"With the dying of the ash trees, that opportunity for the fire to climb up into those dead trees is what we started to see yesterday, and the wind picking up and carrying those embers and spotting it ahead of us is what's caused some of the problem," said NJ DEP Assistant Commissioner John Cecil.
One family was under mandatory evacuation, others voluntary. All evacuations had been lifted by Friday night, and no structures were threatened.
Billowing smoke caused haze for miles.
"The smell was pretty bad. My eyes were burning as I was driving up here. I was actually coughing and I had the windows closed in my car," said Jennifer Petruccelli, who owns a shop in West Milford.
"The terrain is rocky, steep. There's risk from fallen trees, rolling logs, burning debris. So what we're trying to do is establish control lines," said Greg McLaughlin of the New Jersey Forest Fire Service.
All this came while the region saw record high temperatures.
"It's very fatiguing. You start seeing that fatigue set in when you are going day after day and through the night," McLaughlin said.
It's the largest wildfire in the region since 2010, but fortunately no injuries have been reported.
"I've lived here for 40 years and this is the first fire I've seen back there," said Richard Keller.
