I heard that it's a (European?) government plot.  Ban melatonin, thus
stopping hordes of people from becoming centenarians, and saving the
Govt pension funds from becoming severely bankrupted by 2020.

I don't know if there's any truth in this, but no one seems to
have any reasonable alternative suggestions.  Perhaps it is true.

You could try importing from Life Extension Foundation at 
lef at   - but you may hit problems with your Customs & Excise
when the package enters the UK.  Or you could buy it on your travels
to Switzerland, HK, or North America.  Maybe other countries too.
