Halycitrol was a nutritional supplement. It consisted of halibut oil, pure orange juice and glucose. It was available over the counter at chemists. Halycitrol was taken in doses of two tablespoons with or without water three times a day. The interwar years (1918-1939) saw concerns over the British ‘race’. Attention was on the physical condition and health of children. Nutritionists often focussed on the proper feeding of children. Nutritional supplements were supplied in some areas. Halycitrol was manufactured by Crookes Laboratories Limited.
