Souvenaid is a medical nutrition drink that nutritionally supports memory function in the early stages of Alzheimers disease. Souvenaid is available in a once a day, 125ml bottle in both strawberry and vanilla flavours.
Taken once daily, Souvenaid has been shown to have a positive effect in people during the early stages of the disease, by nutritionally supporting the connections in the brain, called synapses.
Based on more than 10 years of research and development, Souvenaid contains a unique combination of nutrients, called Fortasyn Connect, which provide the nutritional building blocks that are required by people with early Alzheimers disease.
The unique combination of nutrients in Souvenaid includes omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, uridine monophosphate and choline, together with phospholipids, B vitamins and other nutrients, at levels difficult to achieve from dietary intake alone.

How Does Souvenaid Work?
There is a growing body of evidence showing that people with early Alzheimers disease have low levels of certain nutrients compared to healthy individuals of the same age. These nutrients play an important role in brain health and memory function. Souvenaid has been designed to supply these nutrients to aid the naturally occurring processes in the brain, that are involved in maintaining the brains integrity. The combination of nutrients is unique, and they work together, so that the effect is greater than when taking them individually.
Souvenaid contains nutrients that occur naturally in food, although the amount of these nutrients would be difficult to achieve through a normal diet. In clinical trials, Souvenaid was shown to have a positive effect in people during the early stages of Alzheimers disease.
How To Take Souvenaid Work?
Souvenaid can be stored in a cool dry place and is stable for 12 months when kept under these conditions.
Once opened, a bottle of Souvenaid should be closed, kept in the fridge and consumed within 24 hours. We recommend drinking an entire bottle of Souvenaid at once to ensure that the correct amount is taken each day.
Souvenaid is ready to drink and can be taken straight from the bottle, through a straw or poured into a glass depending on personal preference.
It tastes best served chilled so we suggest keeping a few bottles in the fridge.
It may help to take Souvenaid at the same time each day. For example: in the morning with breakfast. This should make it easier to remember to take it each day as it will become a habit. Souvenaid should not be heated, frozen or mixed with other drinks.
Souvenaid is designed to be taken once daily. It should be taken under the direction of your healthcare professional.
If the person taking Souvenaid does forget to take it at the usual time, there is no need to wait until the same time the next day to consume it. They should just drink it when they remember or are reminded.
How Safe Is Souvenaid?
Souvenaid contains nutrients that are naturally present in food. Results from two clinical studies showed Souvenaid was very well tolerated and had a positive safety profile.
Taking Souvenaid with other Alzheimers medications
Souvenaid has been tested as an add-on therapy to standard medications for Alzheimers disease. No adverse events were reported as a result of taking Souvenaid along with these medications.
Taking Souvenaid along with other medications
Many patients who have been involved in clinical trials with Souvenaid were also taking medications for other conditions. The use of Souvenaid in combination with these other medications was not associated with any side effects in these patients.
