Brief Answer:
Superoxide dismutase injections

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns.

Superoxide dismutase taken orally is barely absorbed but superoxide dismutase injections are well absorbed and help reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain of joints.

I hope I answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
