In November 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Wellnx Life Sciences for allegedly falsely advertising Nature’s Science 100% Pure Garcinia Cambogia dietary supplements. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company markets the product as a weight-loss supplement when, according to plaintiffs, it does not and cannot provide the promised benefits. In addition, the complaint claims that the supplement only contains approximately 26% of the amount of hydroxycitric acid represented on the label. (Choo et al v. Wellnx Life Sciences, Inc. and Platinum US Distribution, Inc. d/b/a Wellnx Life Sciences, USA
, Case No. 17-cv-2517, E. D. CA.)
