I’m promoting https://immunedefence.com/ a zinc based product to strengthen the immune system.
I mention the Coronavirus in the first line but I’m not promoting it as a coronavirus cure.

Just want to make sure that I won’t get in trouble by the FTC or UK trade commissions.
Here’s the script I wrote:
How strong is your immune system? With the Coronavirus on a warpath we’d rather not find out.
That’s why we’re taking Immune Defense for an added lay
er of protection against colds and viruses.
Immune Defense provides 3.5mg of elemental Zinc which the Cleveland clinic foundation discovered was able to suppress the symptoms of colds and viruses by over 50% helping you to recover twice as fast!
Immune Defense also contains 2.5mg of Vitamin C which the department of pathology in Christchurch New Zealand found can prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections by enhancing your body’s immune cell functions.
Over 3 Billion people around the world are elderly or have a weakened immune system.
Protect yourself and the people you love with Immune Defense and you’ll be covered by a 100 day money back guarantee.

Wow, sorry for posting 3 times. This site kept freezing.

Hi,

I see you have not provided any footnotes to the references. If you do so, I believe there is nothing there which would constitute false claims. You are stating that Vitamin C and Zinc help your immune system which you should reference. Other than this, I cannot see anything wrong with this.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks,
