Intramuscular injections, are administered into larger muscles in the body, usually in the deltoid muscle located in the upper arm. This delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream, achieving higher absorption, efficiently and rapidly.
IMs are absorbed faster than any other form of method, this is because the muscle has a greater blood supply opposed to the tissue just under the skin.
