A 12in24™ member shall not diagnose any medical condition or prescribe the Product as a treatment or prevention for any disease or condition. Medical claims regarding any Product are strictly prohibited. 12in24™ members should recommend to any customer who is currently under the care and attention by a physician, or currently using any medical treatment or care plan, that they are to seek the advice of their accredited healthcare provider before consuming the Product.
Federal and state laws (country specific) have been enacted to protect the public from those who would deliberately suggest that any substance or device would replace the need for established diagnostic or medical advice, or treatment.

A 12in24™ Lifestyle member should not state or imply that any Product is registered or approved by the U S Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) or any other regulatory authority. When making claims related to the benefits of a Product or giving personal testimonials concerning the Products that may be considered “structure/function” claims.

Unless prior written approval from the Company is obtained, actual, implied, or potential income claims are strictly prohibited. All members should be fully informed concerning the income opportunity associated with being a part of our program. Income is solely dependent on ones one’s own level of skill, dedication, and opportunity. You can earn commissions in proportion to one’s own level of dedication and by building strong downline organizations and sales of Products. Potential income is one of the two major reasons that people join the program. Potential income, however, can be a sensitive issue. In cases where an interested person or prospect wants to know whether you personally have been successful as a member, it is fair to tell them, but you must make sure your statements concerning your earnings are truthful, and not misleading. You must never promise a certain level of income to a contact or prospect, because their performance depends on their efforts and is not representative of the income that that interested person or prospect may earn.
A member is prohibited from repackaging, altering, or otherwise misusing the Products. In addition, a member shall not make claims or provide instructions about the use, safety, or benefits of Products which is not included in the Company’s current literature, warnings, or Product labels for the market in which the product is being used or discussed. A member shall be solely responsible for their actions in violation of this policy.
