Re: supplements taken orally

Vitamin B12 is sometimes given by injection to those with severe deficiency, especially if the doctor believes the deficiency is due to problems absorbing B12.

Re: supplements taken orally

Needles are the only way to inject something into your body. If you are taking a B shot, it is typically administered once a week. Pharmaceutical grade vit B is usually of higher quality than an OTC.

Re: supplements taken orally

There are only 2 reasons to use an injection as opposed to pills etc

1. Where a person has some disease of the gut that prevents adsorbsion (pernicious anemia for example) Even in these cases, using high doses by mouth is often adequate
2 Where a person is so severely deficient that they are in immidiate danger, for example alcoholics who are risking brain damage from thiamine deficiency. They are generaly given a large in jection every day for a few days, then transfered to pills


For the average person wanting to supplement their diet, pills are totaly adequate.
