CHEMISTRY 101: OIL AND WATER DON’T MIX
When you mix oil and water, you know the oil simply floats on top. The molecules of oil are too big, making them unable to mix into a solution.
In order to benefit from our nutrition, food must be readily absorbed by our intestines, which are lined in a fine layer of water. Liquids and solids that are oil-based pass through our digestive system, unable to pass through the water barrier. When you take oil-based supplements, the majority of their benefits are not absorbed by your body, leading to a bioavailability rate of less than 10%.
UltraCell® is different, with a 94% bioavailability rate.
INTRODUCING ULTRACELL TECHNOLOGY
Regardless of how high quality an oil-based supplement is, if your body is unable to absorb the oil, you will not feel the benefits. It’s not what you take that matters; it’s what your body absorbs.
UltraCell technology uses two delivery systems, liposomes and micelles, that work together to maximize the benefits of UltraCell full spectrum hemp oil. Liposomes control the time-released benefits while micelles aim for rapid onset.
Known as the “entourage effect,” this delivery system allows you to benefit from more than 400 naturally occurring compounds in our full spectrum UltraCell— and it is only available from Zilis.
In laboratory studies, UltraCell demonstrated significantly more bioavailability than unformulated hemp. In documentation the full spectrum CBD found in UltraCell remained in serum at a consistently high level for hours, allowing more of the beneficial compounds to be absorbed.
Additionally, study participants reported feeling relief within minutes due to the rapid onset of UltraCell. Participants who took traditional hemp oil reported an onset time of one to two hours, in comparison. In other words, UltraCell generates relief in a matter of minutes and for a longer period of time while using much less hemp oil than other products.
CANNABINOIDS IN YOUR BODY
To understand how UltraCell works, you should become familiar with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors found mostly in the brain and immune system. The receptors are responsible for important functions such as regulating sleep, relaxation, and inflammatory responses. The ECS also regulates cognitive ability, allowing for clear thinking.
The human body creates its own endocannabinoids to maintain a healthy body by getting enough sleep, combatting illness and disease, and regulating pain. When the system becomes unbalanced or deficient, there can be a major impact on how we feel. When endocannabinoid production slows, we do not sleep well, we feel pain, or we fall ill.
By employing the phytocannabinoids naturally found in hemp, Zilis has produced a full spectrum, water soluble hemp oil to help balance the ECS—UltraCell.
PHYTOCANNABINOIDS IN HEMP
Plant-based cannabinoids, known as phytocannabinoids, serve as replacements when our own endocannabinoid system is deficient or lacking. The naturally-occuring phytocannabinoids found in UltraCell interact with our ECS to aid with relief and feelings of well-being. Furthermore, UltraCell’s CBD provides health benefits free from THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana.
For years hemp has been confused with its illegal cousin. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, however, America will see a resurgence in hemp agriculture and health benefits from phytocannabinoids.
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 full spectrum hemp oil, which utilizes all parts of the hemp plant and its phytocannabinoids. 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.
