Evidence for memory improvement

Souvenaid is the first nutritional drink clinically proven to improve memory in early Alzheimer’s disease patients in two double-blind, randomised controlled trials [1,2]

Souvenaid efficacy was established in the Souvenir I and Souvenir II trials which demonstrated memory improvement in patients with mild AD, taking Souvenaid once-daily over 12 and 24 weeks, respectively [1,2].

Souvenir I

Souvenir I demonstrated that Souvenaid significantly improved memory performance (assessed by Wechsler Memory Scale-revised) and was well tolerated over a 12 week period in drug-naïve patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease.

Souvenir II

Souvenir II demonstrated that, over a 24-week period, Souvenaid provided significant improvements in memory performance (assessed by a Neuropsychological Test Battery) and was associated with a tolerability profile similar to controls in drug-free patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease.
