It's available in six cities including San Francisco. The price? $8,000 for a liter of young blood; $12,000 for two liters.

According to Business Insider, Ambrosia has completed its first clinical trial but it has not published the results. The report also cites experts who say there is no scientific evidence that shows this treatment actually works.
