45-year-old Bryan Johnson is doing everything he can to turn back the hands of time.

The billionaire tech mogul has taken extreme measure to “de-age” himself as he says, going as far as injecting himself with the blood of his 17-year-old son.

In fact, according to LADbible, Johnson, his son Talmage, and his 70-year-old father Richard all traveled to a clinic in Dallas where Richard and Talmage “had a liter of their blood removed and converted into a batch of plasma, and another of red and white blood cells, and platelets.”

Talmage's plasma was then injected into his dad with the hopes that it would repair any cellular damage and rejuvenate his blood.

Studies on of this process would actually work have all turned out inconclusive, and many in the scientific community believe that trying these methods on humans is “reckless.”

Charles Brenner, a biochemist at City of Hope National Medical Center in Los Angeles, said, “We have not learned enough to suggest this is a viable human treatment for anything.

“To me, it’s gross, evidence-free and relatively dangerous.”

Through it all, Johnson believes it is working.

"My left ear is 64, my fitness tests say I'm 18, my heart is 37, my diaphragm strength is 18," he says, admitting that some parts of his body are older than others.

"I playfully say I'm trying to become like, an 18-year-old. My son is 17, so I always tease him and say, 'When I grow younger, I wanna be like you.’”
