Back in the middle 80s 45-year-olds were really old, or at least in my pre-teen mind. Frankly, 30-year-olds were ancient back then and addressed as “oom” and “tannie”. Salusa 45’s multivitamin formulation became famous for the “if you’re old enough to want to feel younger” line. It was also the source of many a joke and jest for the kids and young adults of the time. Even my athletics coach threatened me with a box of Salusa 45 if, during a particularly tough training session, I complained “like a outannie.”
Turns out, in 2018 being 45 is just being 45. Huffington Post blogger M. Blazoned calls 45 “the middle child of ages… no one is impressed or thinks your turning 45 is a big deal but you.”
Thing is, Salusa 45 worked like a supercharged charm for any adult in need of a mental or physical boost. The good news in 2018 is that the legendary brand is back with a bang, promising more bounce for your body and more go for your grey matter. And because 45 is definitely not old, a trending hashtag #MyAgeIsMyChoice.
Salusa’s return from the dark neon ages of the 80s made me ponder about other trendy things from the period that is great to have back and some things the world is super grateful did not return.
