Brief Answer:
Injectables are absorbed faster by the body than oral.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

Injectables are absorbed faster by the body than oral but I don't think injectable is compulsory. You can manage with oral supplements. Oral supplements are commonly used.

I hope this answered your query.
