Treatment for early Alzheimer’s disease

Treatment for early Alzheimer’s disease Evidence shows unique dietary approach effective in early Alzheimer’s disease Research shows people with Alzheimer’s have low levels of certain nutrients needed to keep the brain healthy New product for the dietary management of early Alzheimer’s disease A new medical nutrition product for the dietary management of early Alzheimer’s disease will be launched today in the UK after more than ten years of research and clinical trials that show it could have significant benefits for those diagnosed with early-stage disease. Souvenaid (a 125ml once-daily drink) was developed by scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and medical nutrition company Nutricia. It contains a unique combination of nutrients that are naturally present in food, at levels difficult to achieve from diet alone. This includes omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid, DHA; eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA), uridine (as uridine monophosphate, UMP) and choline, together with phospholipids and B vitamins. Dementia affects over 800000i people in the UK and Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form. In an aging population, ministers and experts have acknowledged the need to diagnose people earlier, to help manage the symptoms and plan for the future. The loss of connections in the brain (synapses) is one of the key features of early Alzheimer’s disease, and a combination of nutrients is required in the process of making new connections
