Top critical review
All is good except for a few things....

I was happy to see that these capsules are completely vegan/vegetarian friendly. That is a HUGE deciding factor in what I purchase as far as supplements are concerned. I was also happy to see that they are the RIGHT kind of processed coconut oil, or basically anything that is extra virgin, organic, cold pressed and uses no other chemical substances to process.
I have been taking coconut oil both topically and orally for years. It has done wonders to my skin and hair and I think taking coconut oil, for me anyway, works better at keeping me regular than probiotics, Though I would still recommend taking probiotics for their own health benefit reasons.
The capsules are medium to large sized. They are supper soft and east to swallow. I have a hard time with swallowing larger un-coated pill but with these I can easily down two at a time.
Now, here are my hang ups with this brand - 1. They use Carrageenan in their capsules. They are the ONLY brand I saw that does this. Carrageenan for people who might not know, is known to not only cause digestive inflammation and gut irritation, but it can even cause cancer. I have NO idea why this is even necessary for this product. Again, NO other company producing Organic Coconut Oil capsules uses Carrageenan. It is Completely Unnecessary and yes, VERY BAD for your health!
Another issue I have is that the Sports Research claims that the coconut oil is "Certified Organic" however, there is NO certification label anywhere on the bottle not USD and not QAI certified like Jarrow's brand is. It's not even GMP certified and that makes me very suspicious too. If it is truly "Certified" I believe it is required by law to have the company that certified it on the bottle. So again, that makes me a little suspicious. I will contact the distributor of this product when I can to see if I can get some answers. If I do get some answers then I will post the responses here in an update at another time.
