I have heard people say that the B-Skinny products are FDA-approved...is this accurate?
Skinny Science Coffee (B-Skinny) is a Dietary Supplement. The FDA does not "approve" any Dietary Supplements, per FDA 21CFR Regulations. Drugs must go through an FDA approval process, but Dietary Supplements and Foods and Beverages do not. The FDA has the authority to "dis-approve" any Dietary Supplement due to unapproved claims, illegal ingredients, unsafe formulas, etc.

U. S. Food and Drug Administration
Review of Dietary Supplements

The FDA regulates dietary supplements under a different set of regulations than those covering "conventional" foods and drug products (prescription and Over-the-Counter). Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), the dietary supplement manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that a dietary supplement is safe before it is marketed. FDA is responsible for taking action against any unsafe dietary supplement product after it reaches the market. Generally, manufacturers do not need to register their products with FDA nor get FDA approval before producing or selling dietary supplements.* Manufacturers must make sure that product label information is truthful and not misleading.

FDA's post-marketing responsibilities include accurate product information, such as labeling, claims, package inserts, and accompanying literature. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulates dietary supplement advertising, which must be truthful and backed by FDA and FTC scientific claims documentation.

TOPIC: Can members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) use the any of the BORESHA coffee's including B-SKINNY COFFEE or the NUVO GENE TEA?

QUESTION: Dear Dr. Allen,

We have just been introduced to your products at Boresha.

This is an urgent question for literally millions of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) here in the US and also in your international market.

Green tea extract is listed on the ingredients list of your products. On your web pages it lists this (along with buffered caffeine and other items) as a cornerstone ingredient in the products.

Our religion forbids the drinking of coffee and tea. Herbal teas aren’t a problem. And although we are warned against excessive caffeine, caffeine itself isn’t forbidden. (In other words, we do not drink coffee in any form, even decaffeinated.)

I seek your guidance as to whether we can use the products.

I know you are not only a superb researcher, but from your emphasis on so many destructive diseases, I know you a deeply caring person and, even if a product was marvelously beneficial, you would not want any of us to violate promises we have made to our Heavenly Father.

Certainly, you have other splendid products that we could use. So I’m sure other of your products would be beneficial.

Thank you for your time. It is wonderful to see someone finally concentrate on Low Glycemic products since that will help us avoid diabetes as we age.


We would never want anyone to violate any promises made to the Heavenly Father, and as such, we take our responsibilities and obligations quite seriously.

We use a Standardized Herbal Extract (Green Tea decaffeinated Extract) in the Patented Nuvo Gene Tea™, which is accepted by, and used by manufacturer’s and companies whose products comply with the LDS Church.

The Boresha coffee's and the B-Skinny Coffee are obviously not an option for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons), as coffee in any form is not allowed, so the Nuvo Gene Tea™ is an acceptable alternative.

Best Regards,
Dr. Ann de Wees Allen
Chief of the Medical Advisory Board
Boresha International
