Mia's Review: Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps Capsules

Just recently, I was approached to try out this TCM product by Vita Green, called Vita Yin Yang, which basically is just cordyceps capsules, and 1 capsule is equivalent to 15 wild cordyceps in terms of active ingredients!

The ultimate health enhancer for kidney, lung and immune functions, helping to achieve Yin Yang harmony.
Supercharge your immunity! Vita Yin Yang is formulated to tonify the kidneys and lungs, relieving symptoms such as respiratory discomfort, coughing and general malaise, and preventing future problems.

Here are some write up taken from the product packaging itself for interested readers to familiarise with the nature of the product. As you can see, there's literally nothing else in the capsules other than cordyceps. This pretty much explains the price tag of HKD$499 (vitagreen website) and SGD $109 at local pharmacies (Guardian Pharmacy).

 The packaging is pretty unique. Instead of a usual flip open box at the top, it pushes up from the top to reveal the content within.

 And here's another short product description printed on the box. This description also comes in a Chinese version on the other side of the box. 

 And this was what I took out from within. I was pretty surprised to find 6 small sealed packs of 10 capsules each, for I was expecting a plastic bottle containing the 60 capsules. No doubt, this packaging is much more convenient and it's so much easier to just pop a pack of 10s into my bag for me to take my daily dosage in office after my breakfast instead of bringing the whole bottle of  60s everywhere I go.

Due to both time limit (got the offer pretty late) and my lack of health issues (apart from feeling lethargic at work), I've decided to try out just 1 pack of the product at 1 capsule per day for 10 days straight, while my dad shall have the rest of the 50s.

I tend to get really lethargic at times and is impossible for me to wake up easily in the morning. And when stressed at work, I tend to get this heavy tightening of my chest that makes my breathing becomes 'choppy' and difficult. After my 10 days on Vita Yin Yang, I didn't feel much difference with my stress-breathlessness. But to be fair to the product, it's highly probable that just a mere 10 days of 1 capsule per day is insufficient to see any form of results. I'm basically still a zombie every morning, dragging my sleepy self on my leaden legs to work. Nevertheless, I do notice that I get less lethargic during mid-day at work, even with more labour intensive schedules for this week.

As for my dad, he took the product at differing dosage of either 1 or 2 capsule per day. Being a heavy smoker, he also suffers from the same breathlessness as me (albeit, mine is due to stress while his stems from prolong smoking), hacking smoker's cough (many times I think he's gonna throw up from his coughing fits), and frequent visits to the loo at night (many times I got woken up from my sleep when he wakes up to visit the loo). After his 10 days of higher dosage on the product, he still gets the same breathless issue as before but his smoker's cough seems to have mellowed out a bit. At least, he doesn't look like he's going to throw up all over the sofa while he coughed these few days, and I also noticed that he doesn't wake up as frequently in the nights to visit the loo.

Coincidence or what, I'm not sure. In order not to give an inaccurate, biased review. I can only add on that just a mere 10 days on a supplement product is hardly sufficient to let us see any significant health improvement. However, I do believe that 10 days is enough for us to gauge whether the product is suitable (for me, at least) or not. And priced at $109 (current introductory price at only $99) for a box of 60s, I definitely do feel it's worth a try, to give it a shot for at least 3 to 6 months (TCM does work slowly) to feel the difference this product is capable of bringing.

Till then,


  1. is this a sponsored review??
    the cordyceps purely cultivated, no wild ones? if it helps for your dad, get the ones with mixed cultivated and wild cordyceps in its content :) the wild cordyceps are the ones that are truly effective, but very much more pricey (so a mixture will od haha).

  2. I think this capsule is very much effective for human body and you described it very nicely. And so far I know cordyceps powder is very helpful for our health.
