Which is the best supplement present that is not having any side effects cures cancer, heart disease, acts anti-aging and gives energy?


The best supplement I would suggest you is the Niagen. Niagen increases the levels of NAD+ in the cells. The more the NAD+ we have in our cells, the better the anti-ageing effect as this substance reduces the ageing and gives more energy.
NAD+ raises the metabolism, enhances the mental clarity and also reduces the risk of cancer, heart diseases and Alzheimer's disease.
Niagen doesn't include any of such additives and has only a pure substance. That is the reason why you will get the most of the Niagen Review in the positive side.

What are the side affects


Many supplements contain active ingredients that can have strong effects in the body. Always be alert to the possibility of unexpected side effects, especially when taking a new product.
Supplements are most likely to cause side effects or harm when people take them instead of prescribed medicines or when people take many supplements in combination. Some supplements can increase the risk of bleeding or, if a person takes them before or after surgery, they can affect the person's response to anesthesia. Dietary supplements can also interact with certain prescription drugs in ways that might cause problems. Here are just a few examples:
  • Vitamin K can reduce the ability of the blood thinner Coumadin to prevent blood from clotting.
  • St. John's wort can speed the breakdown of many drugs (including antidepressants and birth control pills) and thereby reduce these drugs' effectiveness.
  • Antioxidant supplements, like vitamins C and E, might reduce the effectiveness of some types of cancer chemotherapy.
Keep in mind that some ingredients found in dietary supplements are added to a growing number of foods, including breakfast cereals and beverages. As a result, you may be getting more of these ingredients than you think, and more might not be better. Taking more than you need is always more expensive and can also raise your risk of experiencing side effects. For example, getting too much vitamin A can cause headaches and liver damage, reduce bone strength, and cause birth defects. Excess iron causes nausea and vomiting and may damage the liver and other organs.
Be cautious about taking dietary supplements if you are pregnant or nursing. Also, be careful about giving them (beyond a basic multivitamin/mineral product) to a child. Most dietary supplements have not been well tested for safety in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children.

Does the FDA check dietary supplements before they are sold?


The FDA does not check dietary supplements. It is up to the supplement's manufacturer to make sure their product is safe and that the list of ingredients on the label matches the ingredients found in the product.

According to the FDA's website: "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. Under the FDA Final Rule 21 CFR 111, all domestic and foreign companies that manufacture, package, label or hold dietary supplement, including those involved with testing, quality control, and dietary supplement distribution in the U.S., must comply with the Dietary Supplement Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPS) for quality control."

Also, if you notice, supplements always contain the following sentence below the nutrition facts and other information after the nutrition facts: "These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

Who tests the content of the supplements?


The supplement companies are required to test their own products and make sure that the supplement facts and ingredient list are correct. The FDA does not evaluate supplements and it is under the sole responsibility of the supplement companies to make sure that their supplements are safe.
