CHEMISTRY 101: OIL & WATER DON’T MIX
The challenge with full spectrum hemp oil is that it’s lipophilic (meaning oil-based). When mixed with water, the oil simply floats on the top. Since water molecules are packed very tightly, oil molecules cannot incorporate into the water to form a solution. Therefore, the oil floats above the water.
This is a challenge when creating oil-based nutrition products because nutrient absorption occurs primarily in the intestines. Our intestinal cells are covered in a fine film of water, making it very difficult for the nutrient rich oil to absorb into the cells.
This means that most oil and fat-soluble substances are excreted. In fact, the bioavailability of ingestable oil-based supplements is only around 6%. This means that in some cases over 90% of the nutrient value in oil-based supplements may deliver very little to no benefit at all. Our proprietary water soluble delivery system called UltraCell turns simple chemistry on its ear, delivering superior absorption.

CANNABINOIDS IN YOUR BODY
To understand how UltraCell® works, you first must know that within the body there exists a complex network of receptors called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Studies have shown the ECS is most abundant in the brain and immune system and is responsible for important functions such as sleep, relaxation, inflammatory responses, and cognitive ability. According to PubMed, endocannabinoids, of which there are hundreds, are a class of diverse chemical compounds that act upon brain cell receptors altering neurotransmitter release.
The ECS is normally fueled by the healthy production of endocannabinoids. However, when deficient, there can be a major impact on how we feel. The challenge arises when production becomes impaired or slowed. Thankfully, nature has provided us with a gift called hemp which Zilis has crafted into UltraCell using the naturally produced phytocannabinoids found in hemp.
INTRODUCING ULTRACELL TECHNOLOGY
The simple reality is that regardless of how high-quality an oil-based supplement is, if your body can’t absorb the oil, your body can’t use it. It’s not what you take that matters, but rather what your body can absorb.
UltraCell technology uses two delivery systems, liposomes and micelles, that work in concert with each other to maximize the benefits of UltraCell full-spectrum hemp oil. Liposomes act as a time-release payload delivery, while micelles aim for rapid onset. Together, these proven processes work with the body to maximize absorption.
UltraCell is available only from Zilis, and it is the delivery system that brings you more than 400 naturally occurring entourage compounds in full spectrum hemp oil, optimized for bioavailability and absorption. With UltraCell, you benefit from superior technology, and you get the most from each and every drop of hemp oil.
In documented laboratory studies, UltraCell demonstrated significantly more bioavailability, allowing for more of the beneficial compounds to be absorbed than unformulated hemp. The CBD found in UltraCell remained in subjects’ systems at a consistently high level for hours. In addition, the onset of action occurred within minutes for every UltraCell subject tested. For subjects tested with traditional hemp oil, onset took between one and two hours. UltraCell is faster acting, longer lasting, and markedly more bioavailable than other hemp-derived CBD.
FULL SPECTRUM SCIENCE
Unlike other hemp oils that draw upon only isolated portions of the hemp plant, UltraCell is derived using full spectrum hemp oil extract, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. While CBD has known health benefits, the reality is that other CBD-isolate products cannot benefit the body like our phytocannabinoid-rich full spectrum hemp oil. UltraCell contains over 400 biologically active compounds, including CBD and an entourage of other cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, vitamins, fatty acids and minerals. By utilizing all aspects of the hemp plant in its natural state, UltraCell creates an environment where the natural compounds work together to create a synergistic effect. When it comes to UltraCell, the true sum of the whole is greater than the parts. UltraCell makes the power of the hemp plant fully available, the way that nature intended.
PHYTOCANNABINOIDS IN HEMP
Phytocannabinoids (“phyto-“ meaning “plant-based”) serve as a replacement for the endocannabinoids (“endo-“ meaning “inside your body”) you may be lacking. The phytocannabinoids found organically in UltraCell interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, or “ECS,” to aid with relief and feelings of calm and well-being. In addition, UltraCell provides health benefits free from the negatives of THC, which is the main compound in marijuana.
