    Case Studies - Substantiating Claims for Herbal Immune Support Products

    Presented June 17, 2020

    Published: Wednesday, June 17, 2020

    Consumer demand for immune support products has dramatically increased in recent months. At the same time, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are actively monitoring the market for products with fraudulent prevention and treatment claims. FDA and FTC are exercising their authority to protect consumers from firms selling unapproved products and making false or misleading claims, including by issuing dozens of warning letters in recent months.

    These principles are followed closely by plaintiffs' lawyers and state law enforcers who are also actively looking for companies with unsubstantiated marketing claims. This webinar will help you understand effective methods for substantiating your immune support claims so you can minimize enforcement and litigation risks.

    Webinar presenters explain ways to ensure your marketing claims for herbal immune support products are substantiated, truthful and not misleading. Industry experts review several methods they’ve used to ensure their dietary supplement product claims are well substantiated, including: randomized, controlled clinical trials on a well-known elderberry product; in vitro testing to support the legitimacy of the product; and the relevance of use and training in substantiating the effectiveness of traditional Chinese herbal formulations.
