New Alzheimers Cocktail Disputed
January 8, 2010
(ChattahBox) – A new Alzheimer’s cocktail called Souvenaid is making claims that it has a positive effect on slowing the overall progression of the disease. The claims are based off a study where a group with Alzheimer’s disease was give then drink over 12 weeks as opposed to a control group.It was shown that the cocktail provided a slight benefit to those who had taken it over the control group. However, further studies have revealed that the drinks apparent benefits appear to disappear quickly after consumption of Souvenaid is discontinued, and there is a high possibility that some results are even just due to chance.
When a second study was attempted for a 24 week time-period, the results showed that there was no memory differences that had been observed in the 12 week trial. This means that the benefits may be short-lived, or that there could even be no benefits at all. Souvenaid contains B vitamins, phospholipids, and antioxidants.
