For $8,000 per session, you can get young blood from young people to reverse your age.
If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. But if you give a mouse a transfusion of blood plasma from a much younger mouse, you can improve his cognitive and neurological functions—and reverse the effects of aging.

The scientific studies are fairly remarkable. In 2014, researchers at Stanford University demonstrated that infusion of young blood plasma in mice "is capable of rejuvenating synaptic plasticity and improving cognitive function." In other words, blood helps keep mice young.
Can this work on humans, too? Jesse Karmazin, a 32-year-old physician and graduate of Stanford University’s medical school, says yes. Karmazin is the founder of Ambrosia LLC, a company that is charging adults $8,000 to be injected with blood plasma from young people (ages 16-25). It's part of a clinical trial to test the anti-aging benefits of plasma transfusions. The trial passed ethical review, but you have to be 35 or older (and, well, able to scrounge up $8,000) to participate.And, Karmazin insists, it really works. He told me that the treatments contribute to heart health and brain health, and that his customers (most of whom are healthy and around retirement age) seem quite satisfied. Karmazin went so far as to compare his procedure's effects to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button—the story of a man who ages in reverse.
