- Biotech founder Bryan Johnson aims to have the body of an 18-year-old, Bloomberg reported.
- He and a team of experts started a program called Project Blueprint to unlock the key to aging.
- Test results show Johnson has a heart with a 37-year-old, according to the report.
Bryan Johnson is 45 years old but, according to a new report, his test results show he has the heart of a 37-year-old and the lungs of a young adult.
Johnson is a biotech entrepreneur who hopes to play nature’s aging course and have the organs and health of an 18-year-old by going through an intensive data-driven experimental program called Project Blueprint.
According to a recent Bloomberg profile of the CEO, Johnson could spend up to $2 million on his body this year and there are early signs that he may be on track to unlock the secret to age reversal.
Test results from doctors indicate that Johnson has the heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old, and the lung capacity of an 18-year-old, Bloomberg’s Ashlee Vance reported.
The program is led by Oliver Zolman, a 29-year-old doctor who calls himself a “rejuvenation doctor” and is supported by a team of more than 30 health experts, according to the report.
Although still in its experimental phase and constantly being tweaked, the health program consists of a rigorous daily regimen of supplements, meals, exercise, and a series of carefully curated physical tests.
Johnson’s 5 a.m. for example starts with two dozen supplements for all kinds of purported health benefits: lycopene, metformin, turmeric, zinc, and, for brain health, a small dose of lithium, among others.
His meals, a mix of solid and soft foods, are vegan and limited to 1,977 calories per day. He works out daily, with three high-intensity workouts a week, and goes through blood tests, MRIs, and colonoscopies every month, Bloomberg reported.
“What I do may sound extreme, but I want to prove that self-harm and decline are not inevitable,” Johnson told the outlet.
All his efforts in 2021 amounted to what Johnson claims is a world record epigenetic age reversal of 5.1 years.
In certain aspects of his health, he has shown signs of a younger age. Doctors say he has gum inflammation in a 17-year-old, and a device that tracks Johnson’s rate of nighttime seizures is similar to that of a teenager, Bloomberg reported.
Johnson also hopes to inspire others to follow his data and medicine-driven program by turning his relentless pursuit of youth into a competition.
Recently, he started a website called Rejuventaiton Olympics, which shows an “epigenetic leaderboard,” ranking the 1,750 people in the world who are fighting against Father Time.
Johnson is currently in first place.
