Why not just take vitamin pills?
There are many different varieties of vitamin pills on the market. The problem is that many people in this country do not absorb vitamins from their stomach very well. A large percentage of Americans are on zantac, ranitidine, pepcid, omeprazole, prilosec, or other pills that decrease absorption of vitamins from the stomach and intestines. Celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome also play a role in vitamin deficiency. When vitamin therapy is given IV or the intramuscular route, the vitamins are absorbed very well, as this delivery route does not depend on the stomach or intestines.
