I wouldn't trust any of those "miracle" products-- they are designed to make money, not to make you feel better about yourself.

Do you eat at least three, good sized meals every day? Do you exercise regularly? Just as some people naturally clock in at a bit overweight when they are at their optimum weight, for some people slightly underweight is normal. If this is the case with you though, you really need to make sure that you eat properly-- no skimping on any part of the meal!-- and that you exercise (which can help build muscle) at least a few times a week, because not getting enough food for you can be even worse than a larger person not getting enough (a good, small framed, friend of mine discovered this when she attempted to go on a diet to give her overweight husband some moral support-- her doctor warned her that it put her life in danger). Since you are in your teens, and still growing, this is doubly important.

If you think you aren't eating enough, then it could well be that you're not getting enough nutrition and that you need to put on some weight.
