Vintage weight GAIN adverts
I googled the product and while I can't find any ingredient lists, I did find a whole host of bloggers who were clearly as confused as I am! Weight gain tablets!??! I also found adverts from the 1960s, so clearly women were buying these tablets, etc. They claim to help women gain 4 - 30 pounds!!!! Could you imagine it?? The reason women wanted to bulk up was because of superstars such as Marilyn Monroe (who was a size 16 in her day) and Raquel Welsh (who actually advertised the product at one point) who all had curvy and full figures. Although in saying that Hepburn had a small waif like body, so who knows!
