Dr Mehmet Oz is under fire once again for promoting a weight loss supplement on his television show that 'all credible scientific evidence' proves doesn't work, a new class action lawsuit claims.

The supplement in question contains Garcinia Cambogia, a tropical fruit that has been claimed to aid weight loss by burning fat quicker and curbing appetite.

Garcinia Cambogia was touted as a pill that could help you shed pounds with 'no exercise, no diet and no effort', and Oz brought on a woman who said it helped her lose 10lb in four months.

Oz did not advertise a specific supplement brand on the episode, but the suit claims that his promotion caused sales of Garcinia Cambogia to skyrocket, according to TMZ.

The lawsuit has specifically singled out supplement seller Labrada, as well as Dr.

Oz and Harpo Productions, and is seeking refunds for consumers as well as damages.

Labrada advertises Garcinia Cambogia as a 'fat loss aid', explaining that the Hydroxycitric Acid isolated from the fruit helps control cravings and prevents body fat from being made.

Although the site does not specifically advertise Dr Oz's endorsement, a number of the reviews mention that they decided to try the product after it was mentioned on his show.

A representative for The Dr Oz Show has since said the lawsuit is an attack on free speech.

'As we have always explained to our viewers, The Dr Oz Show does not sell these products nor does he have any financial ties to these companies,' they told TMZ.

This isn't the first time Garcinia Cambogia has landed Dr Oz in hot water.

In 2014 Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon whose television career first began on The Oprah Winfrey Show, appeared before a congressional hearing for praising Garcinia Cambogia, green coffee extract and raspberry ketone as weight-loss aids.

'The scientific community is almost monolithic against you in terms of the efficacy of the three products you called miracles,' she continued.

Multiple studies have concluded that Garcinia Cambioga did not noticeably help people lose weight any more than a placebo pill.

A 2013 study found that although Garcinia extract was safe to use, its effectiveness against obesity remained unproven in 'larger-scale and longer-term clinical trials'.

Oz agreed that his language about the supplements had been 'flowery' but said he believes the products can be short-term crutches and that he even gives them to his family.

'I recognize they don't have the scientific muster to present as fact but nevertheless I would give my audience the advice I give my family all the time,' he said.

Oz reiterated that he never endorsed specific supplements and said he would publish a list of specific products he believed would help Americans lose weight.

Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine,' the letter read.

The university responded that it upheld Oz's right to 'freedom of expression' and that he would not be removed from the faculty.
