In 2014, Dr. Morkel Jacques Otto, and his son Vernon Otto (Medicines Wholesaler and Responsible Person RP) founded IntraVita International Ltd. The company manufactures their own IV nutritional therapy products according to EU GMP standards so that they can ensure that they provide the highest quality and safe vitamin and mineral supplements without preservatives.
Intravenous or IV Nutritional Therapy using IntraVita products delivers a specific cocktail of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into your bloodstream - intravenously through insertion of a cannula into a vein in your arm.
The IntraVita product range also offers single booster intramuscular (IM) injections of certain key vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
IntraVita vitamin drips are aimed at supplementing the body with nutrients that help towards maintaining optimum health and wellbeing.
They are targeted to boost energy levels, aid anti-ageing, maintain athletic performance and improve general health.
The UK MHRA currently classifies IntraVita products as supplements providing that no medical claims are made about their uses. However, IntraVita is expecting this to change in the future, as the CQC has recently notified IntraVita that IV vitamin drip treatments from 2022 fall under the scope of treating disease, disorder and injury.
With over a decade worth of experience in the field and practice of IVNT Dr Otto teaches and trains medical practitioners (Doctors, Dentists, Nurse Independent Prescribers, Prescribing Pharmacists and Prescribing Paramedics) on how to implement and safely administer IVNT treatments within their practice.
IntraVita IV nutrients are high-end premium manufactured IV products. They come pre-made in 250ml bottles that have a 1-year shelf life. Pre-mixed products reduce the risk of infection and mixing errors and are also insured for product liability in the UK. IntraVita products contain no preservatives or traces of animals. The range consists of over 20 products that contain over 30 different types of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
IV Modified Myers (250ml Bottle) is the vitamin cocktail that started it all.

Patients report having increased energy, and increased endurance. The drip contains, vitamin B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Nicotinamide), B5 (Dexpanthenol), B6 (Pyridoxine), B12 (Methylcobalamin) Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride and Potassium Chloride.
IV Liquid Gold (Acetyl Glutathione), exclusively to IntraVita is our ultimate Glutathione IV infusion. Glutathione usually comes as a powder (L’Glutathione) that is mixed with saline and then administered. Acetyl Glutathione is the bio-available form of Glutathione and the most stable, it is also absorbed better than L- Reduced Glutathione in the body. Acetly Glutathione can increase levels of Glutathione found in cells far more than L’Reduced Glutathione.

Most people will feel well immediately after completion of their first IV therapy and go on to feel a sense of general wellness and increased energy for several days.
Minor side effects from this treatment include bruising and tenderness at the needle insertion point, with potential for inflammation of the vein (thrombophlebitis) due to the cannulation. These should be temporary and normally resolve in two or three days.
Some people may feel a little faint or lightheaded immediately after treatment and need to wait before leaving the clinic.
Various complications can occur both during and after intravenous cannulation including pain, difficulty introducing the cannula, arterial puncture, blood clot formation, infection and necrosis. Rarely an allergic reaction could cause anaphylaxis.
