Let’s face it: as we age, it becomes increasingly difficult to generate and maintain the energy we need to do everything every day. Often, even a good night’s sleep and a healthy diet don’t always give us the punch we need to be the best version of ourselves. Mikra understands this (very normal) situation and is on a mission to increase your lifespan by innovating and seamlessly iterating on the most potent, clinically tested bioactive compounds on the market. CELLF by Mikra is designed to positively impact your brain, heart, skin, and muscular systems. We spent a day at the pool with Cullen Jones, former Olympic swimmer and Mikra fan, to find out how using CELLF helped him re-energize and achieve that “oopmh” we all crave these days. .
Cullen Jones, Olympic swimming champion
To call Cullen Jones just an “accomplished swimmer” is a gross understatement. Jones is a two-time and four-time medalist American Olympian, having won two gold and two silver medals – and he holds the world record for the 4×100 meter freestyle relay. Today, Jones works in sports marketing for SpeedoUSA and when not in the pool or at the office, he spends time at home with his wife and son. Although no longer on an Olympic training schedule, Jones relies on Mikra to improve his energy levels and brain performance, especially on busy days. From thorough workouts in the gym to focusing in Zoom meetings, Mikra’s CELLF has had a profound impact on Jones’ energy levels.
Q: What is your favorite swimming memory?
Cullen Jones: Winning the 4x 100m freestyle relay at the Beijing Olympics. There was a lot of pride to be won, especially in the way we did it. But my biggest goal was to hear my name: “Represent Team USA, Cullen Jones!” It was my favorite moment.
Q: What is the moment of your post-Olympic career that you are most proud of?
CJ: The proudest moment of my career was the transition to professional work. It was scary at first, but when I realized that I could use all the lessons I had learned from my sport in the world of work, it didn’t seem so daunting. These life lessons and discipline are hard to replicate.
Q: What does your average day look like today?
CJ: Now my average day wakes up around 5:00 a.m. and I head to the gym to lift and swim. What started as a passion and a job has now become meditative. I train now to relax and feel good about myself and about the day. I then come home to clean up and get my son ready for the day. Then it’s off to work remotely for SpeedoUSA. Off the clock you can find me giving a swimming lesson or playing with my son after kindergarten.
Q: Can you tell us more about your efforts to promote diversity in swimming?
CJ: I work with USA Swimming to create the Make A Splash initiative which has now become the Make A Splash Media Tour. The goal is to make all American children safer around water.
Q: How rewarding is the work you do in your community?
CJ: I believe the work I did in the community is the reason I stayed in the sport for as long as I did. Every time I saw someone overcome a fear or overcome a difficulty in the water, it rejuvenated my love for the sport.
Q: What are your current training goals?
CJ: I no longer train for the Olympics, but I train for my overall health. I thought of lifeguards.
Q: How do you stay motivated in the gym?
JC: My biggest goal is to get to the gym in the first place. Once I’m in the door, I have the motivation to work. Getting out of a warm bed is difficult. I use Mel Robbins’ five second rule to start the engine!
Q: What is your impression of Mikra?
CJ: I’ve been using Mikra CELLF for about six months now and I’m a fan. I felt more energized throughout the day and clearer on all video calls I have.
Q: Who would you recommend Mikra to?
CJ: Anyone who feels sluggish or needs a cure for brain fog.
With its myriad of benefits – including delayed biological aging, cognitive support, brain and body energy, and increased focus – it’s no wonder CELLF is so popular.

Its formula is designed to add years of good health to your life, increasing your life expectancy so you can feel better for longer. CELLF is specially designed for those who need an extra boost in focus, energy and exercise recovery, especially those with age-related needs, and a single dose facilitates the adding to your daily routine.
