Quality Controls

1. Introduction

The Three Treasures®, Woman’s Treasure™ and Little Treasures® are Chinese herbal formulae created by Giovanni Maciocia® in 1994 and are made available to professional healthcare practitioners globally. Giovanni Maciocia® is widely regarded as a preeminent professor of Chinese Medicine in the West. Their continued popularity for almost a quarter of a century and counting is testament to the quality of the formulae and their success in clinical practice. Quality control is a top priority and the formulae are free from:

  • No Aristolic acid;
  • No Hydrogenated oils;
  • No magnesium stearate;
  • No animal products;
  • No mineral ingredients;
  • No heavy metals;
  • No pesticides;
  • No contaminants;
  • No toxic herbs or banned herbs.

The Three Treasures® and Woman’s Treasure™ are produced using only fully authenticated concentrated herbal powders. The powders have been tested for pesticides, heavy metals, bio-burden and, where necessary, aflatoxins. Each tablet contains a 5:1 concentrate.

The Three Treasures® are primarily based on traditional Chinese formulae but adapted by Giovanni, based on his extensive clinical experience, to meet the patterns displayed by Western patients as opposed to Chinese patients. Some of the formulae are based on his own formulations. Please refer to the Formulae section of the website for further information.
