memory loss in early Alzheimer's

Research has show that people with memory loss in early Alzheimer’s disease often have low levels of the above key nutrients, despite eating a normal diet1-2.

For people with early Alzheimer’s disease, who are subject to an accelerated loss of brain connections, it’s important to consistently maintain the right levels and combination of these key nutrients – which can be difficult to achieve through diet alone.

Souvenaid® provides these key nutrients at levels otherwise difficult to achieve with a regular diet.

Scientifically Formulated

Two clinical trials have been carried out to look at the effect of Souvenaid® on patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease. Souvenir I trial, investigated the effects of Souvenaid® over a 12 week period1 while in Souvenir II the study period was extended to a 24 week period2

All trials showed, in patients taking Souvenaid®, the nutrients were absorbed, as reflected in the increased measured blood samples during the trial period, resulting in improved nutritional status1-2.
