Bryan Johnson, a software entrepreneur and CEO of KernelCo, claims to have reduced his epigenetic age by 5.1 years through "Project Blueprint", Bloomberg reported.
The project is led by a team of 30 medical experts who monitor Johnson's body functions and work to "reverse the aging process in each of Johnson's organs," according to a recent Bloomberg report.
45-year-old Johnson follows a strict routine that includes a vegan diet, daily exercise, and regular monitoring of his vital signs and organ functions. He aims to have the body of an 18-year-old and is on track to spend $2 million to achieve it.
Johnson's medical team is headed by Oliver Zolman, a 29-year-old physician, whose goal is to prove that humans can reduce the biological age of their organs by 25%. The project was born from Johnson's desire to overcome his self-destructive behavior of overeating.
“There is no person in the world who is 45 chronologically but 35 in every organ,” Zolman told Bloomberg. “If we can eventually prove clinically and statistically that Bryan has made that change, then it will be such a large effect size that it will have to be causative of the intervention and beyond what’s genetically possible.”

Johnson follows a strict regimen to reverse the aging process in his body. He consumes 1,977 calories per day and exercises for an hour every day, going to bed at the same time every night. His morning routine starts at 5 am with two dozen supplements and a green juice containing creatine and collagen peptides.
Johnson's vital signs and organ functions are regularly monitored by a team of 30 medical experts, who use a variety of diagnostic tools such as ultrasounds, MRIs, colonoscopies, and blood tests to track his progress. He is also on track to spend $2 million this year on achieving his goal of having the body of an 18-year-old.
At night, a machine tracks his number of nighttime erections, which are like a teenager’s, Bloomberg reported.
