Forever Young with Blood Plasma and Blood Boys

Staying younger better and longer is a long enduring clamor for everyone. A fantasy as old as time but a fleeting biological dream for each and every one of us. After all, who doesn’t want to be stay forever young.

But do you know that current technology is easing up a little better every day to give the recipient the potion to counter the force of time? This seems a nice music to hear – but for the chosen few with heap of billions to unlock open the fountain of youth.

The Young Blood

The technology uses the what they call “young blood”. Needless to say, it uses young blood from young person. Pass it through a process of parabiosis. It is a process of splicing up together two subjects to benefit one of the other. So, say for example if you splice up together the circulatory system of the young mouse to that of the old mouse, the older mouse gets younger and the young becomes older.

There is one particular protein called GDF11, it is a young blood denominator that gets depleted as you get older. For obvious reason, this causes you to lose that younger healthy glow. This protein factor is the focus of studies of Elevian – a Harvard-based team of scientists.

Pro-Inflammatory Factors

Adding insult to injury is the fact that as you grow older, your body generates pro-inflammatory molecules that sets your immune system into hyper state. In the long run, this may not be good to the body as this eventually causes stroke, heart attacks and other neurodegenerative diseases.

But don’t fret-out just yet, this is where Blood Plasma came into the rescue. Blood plasma is a liquid component of the blood with no blood cells but is reach in rejuvenating proteins. This can even be used to block and delay pro-inflammatory proteins to reverse degenerative diseases.

On the subject of younger and older mouse again, bioengineers at the University of California, Berkeley splice-up nervous systems of two genetically identical mice. One mouse is much younger than the other. In five weeks, the dormant cells of the old mouse began reactivating and regenerating again – both palpable in the old mouse’ liver cells and muscle cells. While the younger mouse considerably gets older.

Therapeutic Plasma Exchange

However, with the quick twist of medical technology, we don’t need a sort of parasitic effect in dosing the subject with the longevity potion. Courtesy of TPE (Therapeutic Plasma Exchange), old blood will be devoid of the old plasma then infuses the old blood cells but this time with a plasma replacement mostly composed of fresh albumin (major proteins in plasma) and saline. In this process the pro-inflammatory factors are also rid-out. This causes not just young regeneration, but also spells off degenerative diseases.

In fact, TPE has been used to help patients with autoimmune diseases such as myasthenia gravisGuillain-Barre Syndrome, multiple sclerosis and even slowed cognitive decline of those with Alzheimer’s to about 66 percent.

Now, billionaires are obviously taking advantage of this biological magic. Some tech billionaires for instance, pay young donors to be their “blood boys” – and you know what happens next. You can help yourself by watching HBO series called “Silicon Valley”. This is where a tech billionaire pay blood boys to be his gushing fountain of youth here on earth.

Sweet, I blame you not, for mine the fault was, had I not been made of common clay. I had climbed the higher heights unclimbed yet, seen the fuller air, the larger day. From the wildness of my wasted passion I had struck a better, clearer song, Lit some lighter light of freer freedom, battled with some Hydra-headed wrong. – Oscar Wilde
