HUMANITY – Stay Healthy Longer, an application that aims to help reduce aging, is now available on iOS, after having been released only to a select group of people.

Founders Pete Ward and Michael Geer started this project more than two years ago with the mission of creating an application capable of monitoring the biological age of users and helping them to slow down and even reverse aging. The application also allows you to monitor nutrition, movement and even mood.

Humanity aims to enable users to remain healthy and disease-free for decades to come.

So far, the app has managed to capture nearly $5 million in investments from 65 of the world’s leading investors and founders in healthcare and consumer technology, including Alex Tew and Michael Acton-Smith (co-founders of Calm), Taavet Hinrikus ( co-founder of Wise), Robin Thurston (co-founder of MyFitnessPal), One Way Ventures, 7Percent, Seedcamp, Breega, Alexander Ljung (CEO and co-founder of Soundcloud) and Esther Dyson, following overly underwritten interest.

The founders of this project have also enlisted the support of some of the world’s leading scientists on their Science Advisory Board, including Kristen Fortney, BioAge Co-Founder George Church. who helped map the Human Genome and is a professor at Harvard Medical School, Aubrey de Gray one of the main stars of the aging science movement, and Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation, among others.

At the moment, the beta version of the application has a capacity of over 10,000 users and there is a waiting list of tens of thousands. The startup was able to create algorithms that aggregate information from anonymous biobanks, where they collect information about the main factors that influence people’s lifestyle and lifespan.

Although for now only the iOS version is available, they are already working on the Android version.
