1. Introduction

The Three Treasures®, Woman’s Treasure™ and Little Treasures® are Chinese herbal formulae created by Giovanni Maciocia® in 1994. Based on his extensive clinical experience, the formulas are based on traditional Chinese formulae but adapted by Giovanni, designed to meet the patterns displayed by Western patients as opposed to Chinese patients. Some of the formulae are based on his own formulations.

The formulas are made available to professional healthcare practitioners globally. Giovanni Maciocia® is widely regarded as a preeminent professor of Chinese Medicine in the West. The continued popularity of his formulas for almost a quarter of a century and counting is testament to the success practitioners have found using them in clinical practice.

Giovanni always insisted on exceptional high quality from his manufacturers with an emphasis on their Quality Controls. For reference, the formulae are free from:
