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.

Vitamin-C

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.

Vitamin-B

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.

Magnesium

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.

Antioxidants

Thankfully, Juventee's IV vitamin therapy in Westwood, 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:

  • Calcium
  • Amino Acids
  • Threonine
  • Arginine
  • Tryptophan
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin D
  • More

Westwood High School team competes for national Academic Decathlon title

Westwood Regional High School was recently crowned as New Jersey's champion for middle-sized schools in the rigorous Academic Decathlon competition. This weekend brings a new challenge: seeing if the team can win the title of top scholastic warriors in the nation. “They’re working extremely hard,” said James Thomas, a math teacher who coaches the 18-member squad, known by its acronym WACADECA. “They got a taste of success last year and now they want more of it.”

The team left for Pittsburgh this week to compete in the U.S. Academic Decathlon national competition, which runs from Thursday to Saturday. It is facing off against teams in the medium-sized category from Idaho, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Wyoming."Many of these are repeat champs," the Westwood squad noted on its Facebook page. "We are the new kids on the block."

The Decathlon is a 10-event scholastic showdown that each year focuses on a new theme and curriculum, with this year’s competition focusing on technology and humanity, said Thomas.

The Academic Decathlon gantlet

It goes far beyond a simple test: Students deliver speeches – on a topic of their choice and on a topic they’ve never seen before. They also write essays, get interviewed by judges and take exams in art, economics, literature, math, music, science and social science. Each team also competes in a “Super Quiz,” where students take turns before a live audience solving challenges from every subject they studied over the past year.

The Westwood team is made up of nine alternates and nine starters, with the starters heading to Pittsburgh for nationals, said Thomas. The students will compete against peers from across the nation in matchups based on their grade point averages.

The work to prepare for the competition began last summer and accelerated around the start of the school year in September, said Thomas. That included study sessions at the Westwood borough community center on Saturdays for extra practice. The efforts paid off when the team won the state championship in March.

“That’s part of the reason we really did so well this year,” said Thomas. “They took a lot of the ownership themselves. They would be posting resource guides when I didn’t ask anybody to do it. They decided it themselves.”

The high school serves students from Westwood and Washington Township.

Daniel Shotkin, a junior, served as a team captain this year, and Thomas said he "really motivated the team and kept them on track." Another junior, Aaron Zeiler, was the team’s MVP and the highest scoring student in the state, according to Thomas. Zeiler was the first-ever winner from Westwood High of the B. Franklin Reinauer Memorial Award, which goes the highest scoring academic decathlete in the state, the coach said.

No matter what happens at the championship this week, he knows his students can be proud of the effort they put in.

“They’re really pushing so I feel really good about it,” said Thomas. “This is a special group. I’ve had decathletes from previous years reach out to me and say that ‘this is incredible and ‘this was the dream.’”

TWP. OF WASHINGTON − The shootout never materialized, but the shutout stayed intact.

Westwood advanced to the NJSIAA Group 2 football final with Friday’s 17-0 victory over Bernards. The teams went in averaging 35.1 and 38.4 points per game, respectively, but traded punts until midway through the second quarter.

That's when senior Tommy Bussanich caught a 32-yard pass from Robbie Carcich to get the Cardinals (12-0) going on a drive that ended with Sean Morrison's 22-yard field goal.

"We were just waiting for a big play," Bussanich said. "It didn't happen for a quarter-and-a-half, but when we called that play, I just knew I had to make it happen."

Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.

Carcich then threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Joe Klein with 15 seconds left in the first half, and that was more than enough for the Westwood defense.

The Cardinals (12-0) preserved their fifth shutout of the season by stopping Bernards at the 1-yard line as time expired.

What it means

Westwood will face Rumson-Fair Haven in the final on Nov. 27 at Rutgers' SHI Stadium.

In the 2022 Group 2 semis, played at Franklin High School in Somerset County, the Cardinals fell to Caldwell in coach Dennis Hard's final game. This year, with semifinal sites based on United Power Rankings, that allowed Westwood to host and gain an edge.

"That played into our hand, definitely," first-year coach Bob Guy said. "Bernards is a great program, they had an incredible season. We definitely made enough plays [Friday] to win, so it was a great job by all facets of our team."

The Mountaineers finished their winningest season in school history at 12-1.

Key stops

Bernards junior Max Austin ended Westwood's opening drive of the second half with an interception, but the home team responded by forcing a three-and-out.

The Mountaineers then drove into Westwood territory late in the third quarter, but on fourth-and-1 from the 30-yard line, nose tackle RJ Ussher led the charge to stack up QB Connor Laverty for no gain.

After sophomore Steve Klein padded the lead to 17 with a 2-yard TD run – which capped a 14-play, 70-yard drive – Bussanich dove on a bad snap to short-circuit Bernards' next drive and keep things out of reach.

"A shutout in the semifinals is a remarkable thing to do," Guy said. "But again, just a full team effort for sure."

Game balls

► The Carcich twins both made an impact: QB Robbie completed 6-of-10 passes for 65 yards and ran 13 times for 35 yards, while two-way lineman Mike made nine tackles on defense.

► Westwood's Aidan Dugan rushed 16 times for 95 yards to lead all ballcarriers.

► The lefty Laverty completed 13 of 20 passes for 122 yards, and ran 11 times for 41 yards, while Terrence Hanratty led the Bernards defense with nine tackles and a sack.

They said it

"There's a lot of work to be done. We're going to watch film [Saturday], celebrate this one on the weekend, and then it's back to work. It's pretty cool how Westwood's going to a stage [where] it's never been before. It's very exciting for us." − Steve Klein

The Iron Horse in Westwood has reopened, with a new menu and a new look

The Iron Horse Restaurant, the 51-year-old, family-owned stalwart in Westwood that was famous for its cheese-stuffed burgers and complimentary pickles and cole slaw, has reopened — with new owners, new name, new chefs, new staff, new menu and a slightly new look.

After a three-month closure, the restaurant, rebranded as The Tavern at the Iron Horse, had a soft opening last week and as of today is officially opened, serving both lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday.

"I tell everyone, it's the same soul with a new wardrobe," said Sean Tremble, whose parents, Lee and Annie Tremble, had owned the restaurant for more than a half century. Sean Tremble has stayed on as, well, "I don't know," he said. "I guess I'm the general manager. We don't have titles here. We're just a team."

805 Hospitality, a hotel management company, bought the business from the Tremble family at the end of July, allowing Lee and Annie to retire. The new owners do not want their names made public, Sean Tremble said.

What's new at the Iron Horse in Westwood?

No changes were made to the exterior of the space, a building which spans nearly a block and has been an integral part of the Westwood townscape. It's nearly impossible to miss the black signage of an antique locomotive with the words "IRON HORSE" on it.

But the interior has gotten new hardwood flooring (the carpet is gone) and fresh paint. "It's the same bones," Tremble said. "It just needed a facelift."

The new chefs are still tweaking the menu, he said. "It is still a work in progress. I have to say we have two of the most talented chefs I've ever worked with."

The new menu at the Iron Horse in Westwood

The menu today features a slew of new homemade desserts including apple pear tart, cookie skillet with ice cream, and maple pecan bourbon tart that, Tremble said, is "out of this world." Fish and chips were also added to the kids' menu. And the bar has added a cocktail menu. "There's a real focus on cocktails though of course we still have our wines and beers."

As for its cheese-stuffed burgers, cole slaw and pickles? Not to worry. They're still being offered.
