Albeit the science community still isn't in agreement about whether this works or not, California-based Ambrosia allows people to be injected with the plasma of young people for the mere cost of $8,000, giving them significant health improvements. Above, a TED talk by Tony Wyss-Coray who seems convinced that young blood "might help reverse aging." It sounds like a big might right now.
Jesse Karmazin is the entrepreneur who made the practice possible, by launching a clinical trial on the potential of "young blood" through his startup Ambrosia. He says that within a month, most participants "see improvements" from the one-time infusion of a two-liter bagful of plasma, which is blood with the blood cells removed.
Several scientists and clinicians say Karmazin's trial is so poorly designed it cannot hope to provide evidence about the effects of the transfusions. And some say the pay-to-participate study, with the potential to collect up to $4.8 million from as many as 600 participants, amounts to a scam.
