Good Morning,

Welcome to our weekly digest, where we explore the cutting-edge technology shaping the future of longevity.

In this edition, we present a striking contrast in the pursuit of extended youth: the multimillion-dollar endeavors of affluent men versus the effective, economical strategies adopted by women like Julie Gibson Clark. Her approach, centering around diet, exercise, and mindfulness, offers a refreshing perspective in a market valued at over $26 billion. We also dive into the world of tech mogul Bryan Johnson, whose rigorous, data-backed anti-aging regimen stands at the forefront of scientific exploration. Additionally, we highlight innovative breakthroughs from the Longevity Summit in Dublin, including advances in organ preservation and animal longevity studies.

Let’s explore …


Meet the Women Who Beating The Millions Spent by Men on Longevity Treatments (Fortune Well)

In the evolving landscape of longevity, Alexa Mikhail’s article reveals a striking contrast: while affluent men invest millions in high-tech anti-aging treatments, women like Julie Gibson Clark are effectively slowing aging with simpler, more affordable methods. Clark, a 55-year-old single mom, follows a basic regime of a vegetable-rich diet, exercise, and meditation, with modest expenditures on gym and supplements. This approach has propelled her to the second spot on the “Rejuvenation Olympics” leaderboard, a global index tracking biological aging.

The article underscores a shift in the longevity market, valued at over $26 billion, where women are increasingly prominent. Emphasizing holistic health rather than costly biohacking, these women redefine longevity goals, focusing on health span and quality of life, thereby bringing a more inclusive and practical perspective to the field of aging.

In the realm of anti-aging, Bryan Johnson’s extreme personal experiment continues to captivate. At 46, this tech tycoon’s daily life is a strict regimen of demanding workouts, a vegan diet rich in grains and vegetables, and a plethora of supplements, all meticulously measured. Despite past ventures like unfruitful teenage blood transfusions, Johnson remains steadfast, driven by the belief that his protocol could redefine aging. His journey, shared vividly online, is underscored by rigorous scientific analysis, turning his Venice Beach home into a hub for anti-aging research. 

Accompanying this narrative is Dr. Leroy “Lee” Hood’s endorsement of a data-driven approach to longevity, emphasizing the need for personalized, preventive healthcare. This blend of discipline, technology, and data not only underpins Johnson’s quest but also poses intriguing implications for the future of aging and healthspan extension.

The Longevity Tech That “Shows Insane Promise” (Longevity Technology)

The Longevity Summit in Dublin, a notable event in the field of aging research, is vividly captured in an article that includes a link to an insightful interview with Dr. Aubrey de Grey. This summit highlighted Dr. de Grey’s groundbreaking work in the Robust Mouse Rejuvenation program at Ichor Life Sciences, demonstrating modest yet significant rejuvenation in mice. This research, lauded in prestigious journals, marked a pivotal moment in longevity studies.

A standout feature of the summit was Keinice’s novel persufflation technology for organ transplantation. Developed under the guidance of Tanya Jones, formerly with the SENS Research Foundation, this method employs cold gas to internally cool organs, effectively overcoming the limitations and damages of traditional freezing. This innovative approach, especially beneficial for larger organs, addresses toxicity and thermal stress cracking, revolutionizing organ preservation.


This week’s foray into longevity showcases a fascinating spectrum, from Bryan Johnson’s multimillion-dollar, tech-driven anti-aging efforts to Julie Gibson Clark’s economical, holistic approach.

These contrasting strategies highlight a unifying quest for extended health and life. Johnson’s disciplined, data-oriented regimen represents a frontier in scientific exploration, while Clark’s simple lifestyle of diet, exercise, and mindfulness exemplifies accessible longevity practices. Additionally, innovations like Keinice’s organ preservation technology, unveiled at the Longevity Summit, mark significant strides in the field. These varied narratives not only illustrate the diverse methods employed in combating aging but also reflect the evolving landscape of longevity research and its potential impact on society. 

As we continue to unearth new insights, the promise of a longer, healthier life becomes increasingly tangible.

Beyond tomorrow,
