"Just a quick note of 'thanks' for great service. Found your site by chance when researching melatonin on line. My husband and I are totally satisfied with the product, just ordered 2 more. We have recommended your site to the folks at the office, and even though our orders are tiny, we appreciate you and wanted to let you know. Cheers, and thanks again." - J&B J., Canada

"This is the second time to order this product for my grand father and my mother. They said, it has been really helpful for their sleep. And thank you so much for good products ,safe and fast delivery to Korea." - T.H.K., Korea

"Thank you so much for the Melatonin. Have been insomniac in the last ten years. As I have extremely low alcohol tolerance, it is rather of relief to have something else that gets me comfortable sleep. I will be dreaming of skiing in Snowbird [in Utah near WWL] tonight! Ciao." - S., Japan

"I have been using Melatonin since 1990 as a sleep aid. I have a sleep disorder and am unable to use sleeping pills (and don't want to). Melatonin makes the difference between sleep and not sleeping. This has necessitated many trips to the United States.... sometimes for the sole purpose of purchasing Melatonin." - M.M., Canada
