Bryan Johnson, a biotech founder, aims to have an 18-year-old body, Bloomberg reports.
He and a team of experts started a program called Project Blueprint to uncover the key to aging.
The test results show that Johnson had the heart of a 37-year-old, according to the report.
Bryan Johnson is 45, but test results show he has a 37-year-old heart and lungs of a young adult, according to a new report.
Johnson is a biotech entrepreneur who hopes to play with nature’s aging process and get the organs and health of an 18-year-old boy through an intense data-driven experimental program he calls Project Blueprint.
According to a recent Bloomberg profile of the CEO, Johnson may spend up to $2 million on his body this year, and there are early indications that he may be on his way to solving the mystery of age reversal.
Bloomberg’s Ashlee Vance reports that test results from doctors showed Johnson had a 37-year-old heart, 28-year-old skin, and 18-year-old lung capacity.
The program is led by 29-year-old doctor Oliver Zolman, who calls himself a “rejuvenation doctor,” and is supported by a team of more than 30 healthcare professionals, according to the report.
Although still in its experimental stage and constantly being fine-tuned, the wellness program consists of an intense daily regimen of carefully selected supplements, meals, exercise and a series of body tests.
For example, Johnson’s 5 a.m. starts with two dozen supplements for all sorts of supposed health benefits: lycopene, metformin, turmeric, zinc, and a small dose of lithium for brain health, among others.
Her meals, which are a mix of solid and soft foods, are vegan and limited to 1,977 calories per day. He exercises daily with three high-intensity workouts a week and undergoes blood tests, MRIs, and colonoscopies each month, Bloomberg reports.
“What I’ve done may sound extreme, but I’m trying to prove that self-harm and decay are not inevitable,” Johnson said.
All their efforts in 2021 achieved the world record for epigenetic age reversal of 5.1 years, as Johnson claimed.
In some aspects of his health, he showed signs of even younger age. Doctors say Johnson has a 17-year-old with gingivitis, and a device that tracks Johnson’s rate of nighttime erections resembles that of a teenager, Bloomberg reports.
Johnson also hopes to turn his relentless youth pursuit into a competition, encouraging others to follow his data and medical-focused program.
Recently, he launched a website called Rejuventaiton Olympics.
Johnson is currently in first place.
