The Dementia Caregiver's Little Book of Hope [Kindle Edition


Nutricia has launched an over the counter (OTC) product for the dietary management of early Alzheimer's disease.
Featuring vanilla and strawberry flavors, Souvenaid product is a 125ml once-a-day drink, which includes a combination of nutrients that are naturally present in food.
People living with Alzheimer's disease have been shown to have relatively low levels of combined nutrients in their bodies despite eating a normal diet, according to the company.
The nutrients, which are included in the product useful for maintaining dietary levels, include omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA]), uridine (as uridine monophosphate [UMP]) and choline, together with phospholipids and B vitamins.
Before the use, people with early Alzheimer's disease must speak with a doctor, specialist nurse, dietician or pharmacist to see if Souvenaid is right for them.
