Is there a difference taking vitamins orally versus injection?

When you take something by mouth, it must pass through your digestive system before entering your bloodstream. Unfortunately, that means you lose a significant amount of the nutrients in the pill before they can provide any benefits to your body. Injections deliver a straight shot of vitamins into the bloodstream. This makes these shots highly effective for anyone who wants to focus on increasing their vitamin levels. Vitamin injections avoid that nutrient loss by delivering them directly into your bloodstream, resulting in 75 - 100% absorption. Plus, if you have any illnesses affecting your digestive system, vitamin injections could be the only supplement option your body can properly absorb.
