Method of Administration: Intramuscular Injection Therapy
How to have B12: It is commonly believed that only intramuscular vitamin B12 is effective for treating vitamin B12 deficiency. In fact, in some situations oral treatment is not appropriate. Intramuscular vitamin B12 is more appropriate in cases of deficiency when there is neurological involvement and in patients with digestive disorders including, diarrhoea or vomiting.
Vitamin B12 Injection vs Supplements
Traditionally, vitamin B12 replacement has been administered intramuscularly (as an injection) because absorption through the gastrointestinal tract is deficient.
Because vitamin B12 absorption by the gut is less effective than a shot directly into muscle, a higher dose is often needed when taken orally. Over-the-counter pills in high enough doses for treatment might be difficult to find, so you might need to take three or more pills to make up your necessary daily dose.
