CernevitTM (multivitamins for infusion) makes available a combination of important water soluble and fat soluble vitamins in a physiologic micellar system specially formulated for incorporation into intravenous infusions. Glycocholic acid and lecithin, both possessing emulsifying properties, are combined to form mixed micelles allowing the water soluble and fat soluble vitamins to solubilize in one container. The lyophilization of CernevitTM (multivitamins for infusion) produces a sterile dry powder intended for reconstitution, providing an aqueous solution. Glycine is incorporated for rapid reconstitution.
