Description

A new approach in early Alzheimer’s disease 

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, affecting around 496,000 people in the UK.2  So far, no single factor has been identified as a cause for Alzheimer’s disease, but loss of synapses is one of the early consequences of the disease, which correlates with impaired memory.

What is Souvenaid?

Souvenaid is intended as a Food for Special Medical Purposes for the dietary management of early Alzheimer’s Disease. The unique combination of nutrients in Souvenaid has been designed to support synapse formation in people living with early AD[1-5].

Souvenaid was developed by scientists at Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition in collaboration with leading international academic institutions. 

The nutritional rationale behind Souvenaid emerged following extensive preclinical work conducted by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The unique combination of nutrient in Souvenaid

Souvenaid contains the nutritional precursors for synapse formation; which are omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid, DHA; eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA), uridine (as uridine monophosphate, UMP) and choline, together with phospholipids and other cofactors.

  • Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, uridine monophosphate and choline are specific precursors for the formation of the phospholipid, phosphatidylcholine
  • Phospholipids and other cofactors enhance the bioavailability of the nutritional precursors
  • As phosphatidylcholine is the most abundant phospholipid in the brain, increasing its synthesis strongly supports the formation of new neuronal membranes [2-5].

The levels of nutritional precursors required to support synapse formation in early Alzheimer’s Disease are very difficult to achieve with a normal diet. 

The unique combination of nutrients in Souvenaid has been shown to improve memory in early Alzheimer’s Disease.

  • Small volume drink (125ml) 
  • Once a day, every day, as a supplement to the normal diet 
  • Does not need to be kept refrigerated, but tastes best when taken chilled 
  • Can be taken alone or in combination with standard drug therapy for Alzheimer’s disease 

Souvenaid must be recommended to you by a healthcare professional such as your own Doctor, Dietician or other qualified medical professional such as a Pharmacist and must be used under medical supervision. If you are unsure of your condition or diagnosis you must seek advice from a healthcare professional.
