No good data: Melatonin is from the brains of many dead animals, who really knows their health status or if they were infected with some strange virus? Agriculture is far from hygienic. I would avoid this product. The supplements are not regulated in any significant way.......For purity, country of origin, look up the consumer's reports study on echinacea.........
