Okay. Start here:

and you will notice right on the home page that there is a melatonin write-up writen by Mike Janke which is worked from information from Dr. Jerry Murray who then reviewed it.

I am having a bit of trouble bringing up the site right now, so can't give you the direct URL at this time.

There is actually a LOT in the FHL Archives on this. If you go to

you will find a large number of past posts. The site is easy to search and then you can skim to see who the message is from and what the title is, so that really helps finding useful info.
