The Endocannabinoid System and How It Works

To understand how UltraCell works, you must first know that within the body there exists a complex network of receptors called the endocannabinoid system, or 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 slow. Thankfully, nature has provided us with the hemp plant, which contains phytocannabinoids that closely resemble the endocannabinoids that we produce ourselves. Zilis has taken the phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant and crafted UltraCell, a full-spectrum hemp oil that allows maximum absorption.


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 many 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, omega 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 nature intended.  




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 because nutrient absorption occurs primarily in the intestine. Our intestinal cells are covered in a fine film of water and we know that oil and water don't mix. This same phenomenon happens inside our bodies, where only water-soluble substances can permeate the intestinal cells. This means that most oil- and fat-soluble substances are excreted. In fact, the oral bioavailability of ingestible, oil-based supplements is only around 6%. This means that over 90% of the oil-based supplements you buy may have also phenomenon very little benefit at all. 


Enter 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,

it can't use it. UltraCell uses two delivery systems,

liposomes and micelles, that work in concert with each

other to maximize the benefit 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 a 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.


Scientific Results

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 the 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 oils.
