How Safe Is Souvenaid®?

Souvenaid® contains nutrients that are naturally present in food. Results from three clinical studies showed Souvenaid® was very well tolerated and had a positive safety profile.1-4


Souvenaid® has been tested as an add-on therapy to standard medications for Alzheimer’s disease. No adverse events were reported as a result of taking Souvenaid® along with these medications.4

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.
