tiles-alzheimers-evidence

Research has shown that people with memory loss in early Alzheimer’s disease often have low levels of the above key nutrients.

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.

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 period1while 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.
