‘Brainbooster’ to be sold for Alzheimer’s

Souvenaid is a 125ml drink containing omega-3 fatty acids, uridine, choline, phospholipids and B vitamins, which manufacturer Nutricia claims support synapse formation and memory function.

Two randomised controlled trials found it improved memory over 24 weeks. The Souvenir II study of 259 drug-naive patients found it improved memory in mild AD. 

Electroencephalography (EEG) measures suggested it had an effect on brain functional connectivity, supporting the underlying hypothesis of changed synaptic activity.
