The “Fountain of Youth” is a mythical object. A parable used to show the fragile nature of human life and death itself? Born of an Alchemic principal about a universal solvent. One that could dissolve all substances and cure any ailment. Including aging. According to Alchemist’s at the time this substance was called Alkahest.
Alkahest is a hypothetical universal solvent, having the power to dissolve every other substance, including gold. It was much sought after by alchemists for what they thought would be its invaluable medicinal qualities.
The waters of the fabled “Fountain of Youth” have taken many forms over the centuries. Including the blood of very young children. It was to contain a substance called Alkahest. Was this myth meant to demonstrate how finite we really are? Or are there practical applications for this ancient Alchemic knowledge.
“It’s almost mythological that something in young organisms can maintain youthfulness, and it’s probably true.”
Tony Wyss-Coray Co-Founder of Alkahest The Guardian 2015
All humans eventually grow old and die. Conversely if scientists, modern day Alchemists, could cheat aging and death. It would be a monumental achievement over nature. This has been one of the goals of Alchemists, scientists and the elite through out history. Examples such as Robert Boyle. One of the founders of the Royal Society, founded in London in 1660. Whose main scientific interest was the ” The prolongation of life“. Through the use of transfusions of old blood with young blood.
Andreas Libavius a German Alchemist in 1615 advised connecting the circulatory system of an old and young man. Looking to transfer the Alkahest from the young to the old.
The hot and spirituous blood of the young man will pour into the old one as if it were from a fountain of youth, and all of his weakness will be dispelled
Andreas Libavius 16th Century Doctor and Alchemist
The rich and powerful can have every material object. Yet when death comes calling all the money in the world will not solve the problem. Life extension is a the ultimate prize for those who can afford anything. At any price! As history has demonstrated.
Recently modern day scientists and entrepreneurs have revived this research. Setting up companies to supply the modern day “Fountain of Youth” to the rich and powerful. These youth promoting components are mined from the blood of very young children. Administered using a method called Parabiosis. Popularized in the last year by mainstream news articles detailing how billionaires are injecting the blood of the young for it’s longevity and health benefits. One of these companies just happens to be called Alkahest.
This article is by no means is accusing or inferring any individual or corporation of violating the law. Only to ask commonsense questions based on the scientific research.
How young is the blood needed and where could it come from? These are the key questions that have driven this investigation.
Some clinical trials get special permission in isolated instances for research. What about young blood being used for life extension? Citing the Requirements by the Red Cross for age and weight for donating blood and plasma at 17 and 110lbs. Where could this young blood come from for life extension purposes? Beyond stories of consenting Silicon Valley blood boys or accounts of human child sacrifice.
This has been the focus of investigation by this blogger in a series of articles. Researching this subject in detail in the first and second installment in this series about Parabiosis and life extension. Taking it’s toll in various ways.
Sourcing the relevant scientific research from prestigious scientific journals. Leading down a winding road showing scientists as recently as the 1950s have been experimenting with using the blood of the young for longevity purposes with incredible results.
Scientific studies over the last half century have demonstrated the fact that the components of young blood have a “Fountain of Youth” effect on older animals that receive it. This is called Hetero Chronic Parabiosis. Pairing the circulatory systems of a young and old animal either through direct surgical connection or periodic injections of young blood. Experiments have shown an older animal that receives young blood actually becomes physically younger. As the young host is sucked dry of it’s vitality the older recipient takes on the qualities of a young animal.
In the past few years, however, a small number of labs have revived parabiosis, especially in the field of ageing research. By joining the circulatory system of an old mouse to that of a young mouse, scientists have produced some remarkable results. In the heart, brain, muscles and almost every other tissue examined, the blood of young mice seems to bring new life to ageing organs, making old mice stronger, smarter and healthier. It even makes their fur shinier. Now these labs have begun to identify the components of young blood that are responsible for these changes. And last September, a clinical trial in California became the first to start testing the benefits of young blood in older people with Alzheimer’s disease.

This first scientific paper establishes the initial research in the 1950s was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the secretive Office of Naval Research. Connecting the circulatory systems old and young mice. Going as far as pairing the equivalent of a 5 year old human with a 47 year old human. Inducing incredible health and life extension results.
Clive McCay, a biochemist and gerontologist at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, was the first to apply parabiosis to the study of ageing. In 1956, his team joined 69 pairs of rats, almost all of differing ages3. The linked rats included a 1.5-month-old paired with a 16-month-old — the equivalent of pairing a 5-year-old human with a 47-year-old. It was not a pretty experiment.

Ultimately the question as to how young the blood needs to be for maximum effect was answered by some of the scientists who formed Alkahest. This was confirmed in the second addition in this series of articles based on research again published in the Journal Nature. Identifying only a small fraction of the baby blood plasma proteins responsible for the youth promoting qualities.
Demonstrating just how far scientists will go to achieve the “Fountain of Youth”. Or how young they will go. Mining the components of even of even new born baby blood in the quest for immortality. Obtained from donated umbilical cords of human babies. Please consider the possible implications. Going from mouse blood to new born human baby blood injected into mice for this study. Rapidly inducing health promoting qualities in a different species of mammal. The grisly answer came in the form of this scientific paper. Showing that baby blood plasma may be the “good stuff” when it comes to it’s rejuvenating effects upon older mammals. Consider what it would do for an over worked billionaire. This is what is publically available.
Some of the scientist’s who conducted this ground breaking study have formed a company to provide this type of product. This start up is named Alkahest. Whose stakeholders include Grifols International, the biggest supplier of blood plasma in the world. Start up money for Alkahest was invested by the family of late Chinese billionaire known as “The King of Cotton Yarn”, Chen Din-hwa. Alkahest’s scientists have experimented with the blood of human teens as well as new born human baby blood. Studying it’s effects on adult mammal’s health, cognitive function and longevity. Including injecting human patients with 18 year old human blood under the guise of Alzheimer’s research. The front of the company’s homepage reads.
“Alkahest’s mission is to enrich the health and vitality of humankind through transformative therapies that counterbalance the aging process.”
Alkahest Mission Statement
Leaving little doubt a to what the company’s mission really is. Hoping to supply this very important product to those who can afford it for life extension purposes. The scientists doing this research from Stanford University are anticipating a huge demand for this type of product. Alkahest is a California based company started in 2014 that aims to supply a potent cocktail of young human blood plasma to wealthy costumers. This will undoubtedly be a very in demand product if the company succeeds. The name it’s self harkening back to the days of Alchemy and “Corpse Medicine”. When the royals of Europe regularly consumed blood and flesh of the young for it’s youth promoting qualities. Many researchers propose this practice has never ended. Now the science could allow this practice to become an industrial endeavor.
Alkahest is partnered with Grifols. A Spanish based company and the biggest supplier of blood plasma in the world. Grifols acquires 45% of the equity of Alkahest for $37.5 million. Alkahest and Grifols to work together to develop plasma-based products for the treatment of cognitive decline in aging and other age related disorders. Grifols has over 150 blood plasma donation centers in the U.S. alone and operates in over 90 countries around the world. Paying it’s consenting adult donors on prepaid debit cards.
Hypothetically, what would be the price to “farm out” young children by an unscrupulous third party vendor in a third world country? Whose blood plasma is much more valuable than that of adult donors. Also known as “overseas milking operations“. Which would certainly be needed if such a product were ever scaled up. This topic will be covered in the fourth instalment in this series. If this blog or blogger is still operating by then.
After one of the lead scientists that founded Alkahest published the research. Tony Wyss-Coray got many emails interested in his findings. According to Ian Sample of the Guardian Newspaper in a 2015 article.
The study was published in Nature Medicine in 2014. Immediately, emails flooded in to Wyss-Coray’s inbox. Alzheimer’s patients wanted infusions of young blood. So did numerous aged billionaires. One, who flies around in a jet with his name emblazoned on the side, invited Wyss-Coray to an Oscars after-party this year. (He didn’t go.) Another correspondent wrote with a more disturbing offer: he said he could provide blood from children of whatever age the scientists required. Wyss-Coray was appalled. “That was creepy,” he said. Can we reverse the ageing process by putting young blood into older people? The Guardian August 4th 2015
Of course the very wealthy would want such a product if it ever came to market. Who could be one of these aging billionaires? With his name emblazoned on the side of all private jets and properties? A perfectly legal interest in this technology may go all the way to the top of corporations and government.
Along with the not so legal interest from a different emailer who offered any age of children’s blood for sale. Once again raising the specter of illegal black markets and child trafficking for this commodity.
Obviously such a potent cocktail of human blood plasma to be served to the world’s elite would have to be top notch. Just as wine and cigars fetch the highest price. The objective of such corporations is to provide the highest quality product. Possibly a high octane mixture of different combinations of blood plasma from differing ages of human children and adults. Depending on the effects desired. More youth promoting qualities may be best obtained from the blood plasma of new born or unborn human baby blood plasma as indicated by the cited scientific study. Which was obtained by the blood from donated umbilical cords. Even adult blood plasma is in short supply according to the President of Alkahest, Karoly Nickolich . Admitting such a product would be very expensive.
“Nikolich estimates that the globe’s entire plasma supply would be sufficient for only half a million of the world’s 15 million Alzheimer’s patients. “That means big questions about who gets treatment and who does not,” he said.” Can we reverse the ageing process by putting young blood into older people? The Guardian August 4th 2015
Just as an example of valuable this substance could be. All the world’s adult blood plasma could be used for this treatment and only half a million could be treated! Why are they even attempting to create this “Fountain of Youth” if blood plasma supplies are so low? Shouldn’t it to be used to save lives. Not prolong otherwise healthy and wealthy lives.
How might this work? These plasma cocktails would be mixtures of differing ages of blood plasma proteins. To promote muscle building and athletic prowess a mixture of 16 year old human blood plasma mixed with 5 year old human blood plasma could do the job. Tired at work running your billion dollar corporation? 18 year old human blood plasma with a little new born human baby blood thrown in. The very elderly elite may receive direct transfusions of pure human baby blood plasma. More often to let them survive the next globalist meeting. Possibly living past a hundred years old. Even these methods have their limit as the science is not yet perfected.
“Wyss-Coray confesses that he suspects as much. He believes that rejuvenating older people might take a more potent brew than natural plasma. He has in mind a concentrated blend of 10 or 20 pro-youthful factors from young blood, mixed with antibodies that neutralize the effects of ageing factors found in old blood.” Can we reverse the ageing process by putting young blood into older people? The Guardian August 4th 2015
Leading to the only available legal means of producing the most potent plasma. Made from human baby blood. Aborted baby parts. Which would be mixed with other plasma from differing ages of children and adults. Everyone is aware that the buying and selling of baby parts from abortions is a multibillion dollar a year business. As evidenced by the various video sting operations caught on camera over the last couple years.
What is the possible maximum amount of new born or unborn baby blood plasma that can be produced in the U.S. in one year? Used only as a crude example of how valuable this product could be. If such a product were come to market. A thought experiment is in order. Based on the scientific paper published in the Journal Nature cited in this article. Which uses new born human baby blood plasma from donated umbilical cords.
This article does not accuse or infer Alkahest or any other individual or corporation of violating the law or using aborted baby parts. Only to look at any possible legal avenue this baby blood plasma could come from in the future. If demand for this type of product skyrockets. As the buying and selling of baby parts is legal for medical experimentation. Remember that the most potent blood plasma comes from new born or unborn human babies. In the study cited. It came from donated umbilical cords. That’s like taking the vine from the fruit. As with all in nature. The sprout is the most nutritious. Followed by the fruit and then the vine. What does your common sense tell you?
This is by no means a statistical breakdown of the full scale of the situation. Only a crude formula. A thought experiment. Used as a basis and an example of how rare and valuable new born or unborn human baby blood plasma may be. As a tool of life extension for the rich and powerful.
Sorry to be so graphic. Take the maximum amount of human baby blood plasma that can be produced if all of the aborted baby fetuses and baby parts were collected in the United States. Ground up in a blender and put in a centrifuge to extract the 7% blood plasma contained within. This would represent the maximum amount of human baby blood plasma that could be produced by legal means in the continental United States in one year. This is the maximum possible amount.
There were about 600,000 abortions performed in the United States last year in 2016. Given the average weight of about 2 ounces per aborted fetus times the 7% blood plasma of the human body. Gives an estimate of only 656 gallons of “human baby blood plasma” that can be made each year in the United States of America. Only 656 gallons! At maximum. Think about that for a second. Look at the reality of where this situation is going. If this type of product came to market it would be the most valuable commodity in the world.
Human Baby Blood Plasma Yield = (600,000 Abortions in U.S. in 2016.) x ( 2 ounces per Abortion average) x ( 7% Blood Plasma per weight) = 656 Gallons per year in the U.S.
(600,000) x (2 ounces) x (.07) / 128 ounces per gallon= 656.25 Gallons
By no means is this the actual amount that could be procured worldwide. Used as a metric for the investigative mind. Making the substance that much more valuable. Blended just for the finest palates. Mixed with diffing ages of young human blood plasma and injected periodically.
One can imagine all of the possible implications and amounts extracted from a sophisticated procurement system. A vintage and quality system would have to be established providing a mixture or the exact blend desired for maximum effects needed. Not unlike high quality wine or whiskey. Do you thing the lust for the finest things in life stops at yachts, wine and cars? Especially for the most sought after commodity in the world. The mythological “Fountain of Youth” or Alkahest sought after by the elite for centuries. At any cost.
