Doctors prove biotech entrepreneur defied aging through strict regimen
CEO Bryan Johnson spends up to $2 million on his body, and it's paying off, while test results by doctors show that his organs such as his gums, skin, and lungs match that of a man younger than his age by 15 years.
Bryan Johnson is 45 years old has a heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old, and the lung capacity of an 18-year-old. He has beat anti-aging by being the CEO of his data-driven experimental initiative, Project Blueprint.
The biotech entrepreneur continues to aim at reversing time and having the health of a teenager, as he stated during a Bloomberg report about him by Ashlee Vance. He spends up to $2 million on his body, and it's paying off as test results by doctors show that he's on the right track.
The Blueprint program is run by 29-year-old physician Oliver Zolman, who dubs himself the "rejuvenation doctor," and backed by a team of more than 30 health experts. Although the program remains experimental, it comprises an intense daily routine of carefully selected supplements, meals, exercise and a set of bodily tests.
Johnson wakes up at 5:00 am and starts with two dozen supplements of lycopene, metformin, turmeric, zinc, and, for brain health, a small dose of lithium, among others.
As for his meals, he eats vegan and sticks to 1,977 calories a day. He also restricts himself to daily exercises and three high-intensity workouts a week, all while undergoing through blood tests, MRIs, and colonoscopies once per month.
"What I do may sound extreme, but I'm trying to prove that self-harm and decay are not inevitable," Johnson told Bloomberg, as he calls his efforts a world record epigenetic age reversal of 5.1 years.
In an attempt to encourage others to go through the same route, he launched a website called Rejuvenation Olympics, with an "epigenetic leaderboard," that ranks 1,750 people around the world trying to reverse age and fight time.
