Please note

Please note if you are a non-prescribing nurse, pharmacist or paramedic then you cannot purchase prescription only medicines such as Sodium Chloride 0.9% (Saline) without a prescription.

90% of the intravenous nutrients manufactured by IntraVita International require dilution with saline or water for injection. Therefore, non prescribers will need a prescriber to prescribe the saline and the water for injection as both are prescription only medicines (POM). The following products require dilution with saline or water for injection: Selenium, Zinc, Ascorbic Acid, B3,B5, B6, Glutathione Arginine, Taurine, Lysine, Cysteine, NADH, Modified Myeres Plus, Immuno Booster, Fat Burner Plus, Skin Brightening, ATP Energiser, Amino Mix 1 and Amino Mix 2.

Non prescribers are limited to the following products that do not require dilution with saline or water for injection: Performance Booster Plus, Amino Muscle Plus, Health Boost Plus, Advanced ATP, Methylcobalamin 5mg and Bcomplex. Please note our most popular cocktail is the Performance Booster Plus.

Upon completion of the course it is the responsibility of the practitioner to obtain their own medical malpractice insurance in order to administer the IV formulas to their patients.

Please note emergency medicine required to treat anaphalactic reactions such as adrenaline (Epinephrine),Salbutamol,Glucagon and Dexamethasome are prescription only medicines (POM) and require a prescription.
