Welcome to HCM,
In my opinion, one should not prefer commercial products to gain weight. For weight gain your food should contain more calories, and you should burn less calories. You can achieve this by consuming natural balanced diet in more quantity. Generally diet we take is not balanced. Essential Amino Acids can not be produced in our body. Some essential amino acids are present in cereals, while other are present in pulses. Thus pulses should be present in sufficient quantity, in every diet we take . Consume some fat also, as it has highest calories. You can take one tablet containing multi vitamins & minerals of standard company daily after food.
Wish you early but healthy weight gain.

Thanks for writing in.
I think a healthy and balanced diet with the right nutrients in the right amounts will help. You should be taking 5-6 meals in a day. Your diet should have 50-55% carbohydrate, 15-25% protein and 20-30% fat. You should also be taking 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
While Endura Mass will help you gain weight, the side effects of this are not known.
I would suggest you focus on a healthy lifestyle and don't take any supplements since their exact composition is not known. The weight of a person is partially controlled by genetic factors. Apart from dietary modification and exercise, there is not much we can do in this regard.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your query.
Being underweight can be a result of malnutrition,malabsorption,medical conditions like hyperthyroid.It is important to find the root cause of the problem.Once medical conditions are ruled out you will need to take a high protein and carbohydrate diet to help gain weight.Endura mass is a product containing whole milk,skimmed milk,maltodextrin,soya protein and preservatives.It can give you some more protein but you need to understand that the body best absorb natural sugars and proteins so it is better to avoid artificially formulated protein supplements.
I would suggest you to consult a dietitian and join a gym.
The dietitian will give you the exact diet chart which you can follow and exercise at gym will help you tone up your muscles and you will gain weight a healthy way.
Take care.
