of Product to be supplied by Seller in excess of the applicable Volume Target

3. REQUIREMENTS.

   (a) Schedule 1 Products. Buyer shall be obligated to purchase from Seller
its requirements of Schedule 1 Products for use in all bulk and branded
products sold by Buyer, whether through Pure-Gar or otherwise. Seller shall
be obligated to supply to Buyer Schedule 1 Products in the amount of such
requirements, subject to certain requirements relating to advance notice and
maximum production capabilities, as set forth in Section 4.

   (b) Schedule 2 Products. In the event that Buyer shall require any
Schedule 2 Product for any of its operations, whether of Pure-Gar or
otherwise, Buyer shall submit to Seller a notice setting forth its
requirements with respect to volume (a "Requirements Notice"), and Seller
shall have the right to competitively bid to supply to Buyer Buyer's
requirements of such products pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Upon
acceptance by Buyer of such bid, such Schedule 2 Product shall thereafter
become a Schedule 1 Product under this Agreement.

   (c) New Products. Upon the development of a New Product, Seller shall
deliver a notice (the "New Product Notice") to Buyer, describing the New
Product, its product specifications, and its estimated price to Buyer
pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, together with such supporting
information and data as to its use as Seller may have available to it. Buyer
shall have ninety (90) days to evaluate such New Product and to place an
order for such amounts of such New Product as the parties hereto shall
mutually agree. If an order is placed within such period and accepted by
Seller, such New Product shall thereafter become a Schedule 1 Product under
this Agreement.

    (d) Other Products. In the event that Buyer shall require any vegetable,
fruit, herbal or botanical products not constituting Schedule 1 Products,
Schedule 2 Products or New Products, for any of its operations, whether of
Pure-Gar or otherwise, Buyer shall submit to Seller a notice setting forth
its requirements with respect to product specifications and volume, and
Seller shall have the right to competitively bid to supply Buyer with some or
all of Buyer's requirements of such products pursuant to terms to be mutually
agreed upon outside the scope of this Agreement.

4. QUANTITIES AND PRODUCTION SCHEDULING.

   (a) Annual Purchase Commitment. For each calendar year or partial calendar
year during the Term of this Agreement (a "Contract Year") beginning with
1999, Buyer shall submit to Seller a purchase commitment (the "Purchase
Commitment") specifying the volume of each Product contemplated to be supplied

<PAGE>
                     CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

pursuant to the Supply Agreement during the following year (the "Volume
Targets"). The Purchase Commitment with respect to each Contract Year shall
be submitted prior to August 31 of the preceding year; provided, however,
that within 30 days of receipt by Buyer of a Price Notice with respect to
Products, Buyer shall have the right to deliver a notice to Seller reducing
Buyer's Purchase Commitment for such Products. Such Volume Targets with
respect to all Products shall not be less than XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX pounds
of garlic nor more than XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX pounds
of garlic. With respect to Contract Year 1998, Volume Targets shall be as set
forth on Schedule 4A attached hereto.

<PAGE>
                     CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

    (b) Obligations of the Parties Regarding Volume Targets. During each
Contract Year, with respect to each Product for which there is a Volume
Target:

        (i) Buyer shall purchase from Seller, and Seller shall sell to Buyer,
at least XXX of the applicable Volume Target for such Product;

       (ii) Buyer shall have the right to purchase from Seller, and Seller
shall sell to Buyer if ordered, up to XXXX of the applicable Volume Target
for such Product; and

      (iii) if Buyer shall give Seller reasonable notice that its
requirements for such Product shall exceed XXXX of the applicable Volume
Target, Seller shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to make such
amount available to Buyer for purchase; provided, however, that in the event
Seller is unable to fulfill Buyer's requirements for such Product within 30
days, Buyer shall have the right to purchase such unfulfilled amount of such
Product from other sources.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Buyer submits a Purchase Commitment
containing Volume Targets that (A) with respect to high-allicin Schedule 1
Products (minimum allicin yield of XXXXX ppm), exceed XXX of the sum of all
Volume Targets for Schedule 1 Products derived from garlic; (B) with respect
to ultrahigh-allicin Schedule 1 Products (minimum allicin yield of XXXXX
ppm), exceed XXX of the sum of all Volume Targets for Schedule 1 Products
derived from garlic; or (C) with respect to Schedule 1 Products derived from
organic garlic, exceed the volume of such Products supplied to Pure-Gar by
Seller during calendar year 1997 as set forth on Schedule 4B attached hereto
(individually and collectively, "Premium Product Orders"), then Seller shall
be obligated to exercise only commercially reasonable efforts to make such
amounts available to Buyer for purchase; provided, however, that in the event
Seller is unable to commit to fulfill Buyer's requirements for such Product
within 30 days, Buyer shall have the right to purchase such unfulfilled
amount of such Product from other sources.

Buyer shall pay such premium on such amount of Product in excess of the
Volume Targets which are based on the Products which can be normally produced
using Seller's current processes.

    (c) Forecasts. Buyer shall provide Seller with advance forecasts of its
volume requirements with respect to each Product, as follows:

        (i) on an annual basis, for each Contract Year, concurrently with the
submission of the Purchase Commitment with respect to the immediately prior
Contract Year; and

       (ii) on a monthly basis, for the subsequent 90-day period or portion
of such period within the Term.

Forecasts made pursuant to this paragraph shall not be binding upon either
party.

5. EXCLUSIVITY AND NON-COMPETE.

    (a) Exclusivity.  Except as otherwise provided herein, Seller shall
exclusively supply

<PAGE>


the Schedule 1 Products to Buyer in Buyer's Marketing Channels as defined on
Schedule 5 attached hereto. During the Term, neither Seller nor any affiliate
of Seller shall sell Schedule 1 Products (including Schedule 2 Products which
have become Schedule 1 Products pursuant to Section 3(b) of this Agreement
and New Products which have become Schedule 1 Products pursuant to Section
3(c) of this Agreement) to purchasers other than Buyer that market such
Products in Buyer's Marketing Channels; provided, however, that with respect
to Schedule 2 Products which have become Schedule 1 Products, Seller shall
have the right to continue to make sales to purchasers with whom Seller has
continuing supply relationships that exist at the time Seller first supplies
such Product to Buyer pursuant to this Agreement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller and any affiliate of Seller shall be
free at all times to sell any Product to its industrial ingredients customers
and shall be free at all times to sell all Schedule 1 Products, Schedule 2
Products and New Products to purchasers that do not market such Products in
Buyer's Marketing Channels.

    (b) Resale Restriction. At the request of Buyer, Seller shall use
reasonable efforts to enforce the restriction in Section 5(a) against any of
Seller's customers that resell Products obtained from Seller into any of
Buyer's Marketing Channels.

    (c) Non-Compete. The Seller hereby agrees as follows:

        (i) During the Term of this Agreement as set forth in Section 6 below
but without giving effect to any earlier termination other than a termination
by reason of the breach or insolvency of Buyer (the "Noncompete Period"),
Seller will not, without the express written consent of Buyer, directly or
indirectly, anywhere in the United States or any of its territories, engage
in any activity which is exclusively reserved to Natrol under Schedule 5
hereto.

       (ii) It is specifically understood and agreed that any breach of the
provisions of this Section 5(c) by Seller will result in irreparable injury
to the Buyer and its subsidiaries and affiliates that the remedy at law alone
will be an inadequate remedy for such breach and that, in addition to any
other remedy it may have, the Buyer and its subsidiaries and affiliates shall
be entitled to enforce the specific performance of this Section 5(c) by
Seller through both temporary and permanent injunctive relief without the
necessity of proving actual damages or the posting of any bond, but without
limitation of their right to damages, and any and all other remedies
available to them, it being understood that injunctive relief is in addition
to, and not in lieu of, such other remedies. In the event that any covenant
contained in this Section 5(c) shall be determined by any court of competent
jurisdiction to be unenforceable by reason of its extending for too great a
period of time or over too great a geographical area or by reason of its
being too extensive in any other respect, it shall be interpreted to extend
only over the maximum period of time for which it may be enforceable and/or
over the maximum geographical area as to which it may be enforceable and/or
to the maximum extent in all other respects as to which it may be
enforceable, all as determined by such court in such action. The existence of
any claim or cause of action which Seller may have against the Buyer or any
of its subsidiaries or affiliates shall not constitute a defense or bar to
the enforcement of any of the provisions of this Section 5(c).

<PAGE>


      (iii) The restrictions set forth in this Section 5(c) have been
specifically negotiated by sophisticated commercial parties; are integrally
related to the exclusivity arrangements contemplated hereby, are reasonable
and necessary in time, scope, and geographic area (as Seller has conducted
the Pur-Gar business throughout the United States, including without
limitation all counties of California); are integral and essential to the
sale and purchase of the assets and business of Pure-Gar pursuant to the
Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Pure-Gar Business"); constitute a material
inducement to the Buyer to enter into the Asset Purchase Agreement in
consideration of the payment of the substantial consideration specified
therein for the assets conveyed thereunder, and of the payments made pursuant
to this Agreement, in addition to the exclusivity granted in Section 5(a)
hereof, so that Buyer might realize the value of its purchase of the Pure-Gar
Business.

6. TERM AND TERMINATION.

    (a) Term. The term of this Agreement (the "Term") will begin on the
Effective Date and expire on August 31, 2005; provided, however, that the
Term will be extended automatically for successive one-year periods
thereafter unless either party gives notice during the month of August in any
year of its intent not to renew this Agreement at least two (2) years in
advance, in which case this Agreement shall terminate upon the end of such
two-year period.

    (b) Termination. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the
contrary, either party shall have the right, in addition and without
prejudice to any other rights or remedies, to immediately terminate this
Agreement by giving notice to the other party (which notice shall specify the
reason for the termination and the effective date of such termination), upon
or after the occurrence of any of the following events:

        (i) the other party commits any material breach of the terms hereof
that, in the case of a breach capable of remedy, has not been remedied within
sixty (60) days of the receipt by the party in default of notice specifying
the breach and requiring its remedy; provided, however, that in the case of a
failure by Buyer to pay for Products and such failure is not being contested
by Buyer in good faith, then Buyer shall have fifteen (15) days from its
receipt of written notice from Seller of such failure to pay to cure such
failure. From and after the date of such failure to cure, Seller will have no
obligation to accept any order for Products hereunder unless all amounts owed
by Seller hereunder have been paid and the order is accompanied by full
payment of the purchase price of the Products covered thereby.

       (ii) the entry of an "Order for Relief" naming the other party as a
"Debtor" under Title 11 of the United States Code or upon the entry of a
decree or order by a court having competent jurisdiction in respect to any
petition filed or action respecting a party directly involved in a
reorganization, arrangement, creditors' composition, readjustment,
liquidation, dissolution, bankruptcy or similar relief under any other
present or future United States or other statute, law or regulation, whether
or not resulting in the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee,
trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official, and the
continuation of any such decree or order is unstayed and in effect for a
period of thirty consecutive days; or

     (iii) the making by the other party of an assignment for the benefit of
creditors,

furtherance of any such action.

    (c) Effect of Termination. Termination or expiration of this Agreement
will not affect any other rights of the parties which may have accrued up to
the date of such termination or expiration and, in addition, neither party
will be relieved of any obligation for any sums due to the other party, and
with respect to Section 5(c), Seller will not be relieved of any obligations
thereunder, unless termination is by reason of the breach by or insolvency of
Buyer.

7. TAXES.

   (a) Payment by Buyer. Prices provided for in Section 2 are exclusive of
all applicable federal, state or local sales, use, property, value added,
excise or similar taxes that may be levied upon Seller as a result of sale or

exemption is required in order to exempt the sale of Products from any such
taxes, Buyer will furnish Seller with such a certificate or document prior to
delivery by Seller.

                                   Schedule 5

Date:    February 27, 1998

    Given that that it is extremely difficult to legally define the channels
of distribution to which Natrol is being granted "Exclusivity", we feel a
mutually signed memorandum of understanding would be helpful in documenting
the spirit of the Supply Agreement.

    As a supplier of raw material to numerous trade classes, Natrol expects
to have the right to sell any product that BVP manufactures during the term
of the Supply Agreement. Our primary interest is nutraceutical grade garlic,
our secondary interest is BVP's Schedule II Products, and our third interest
is any New Products developed or supplied by BVP.

    Natrol clearly understands that BVP's customer base consists of
industrial clients such as Lipton, C.W. Post, Taco Bell, General Mills, and
that B.V.P. retains the rights to sell product to these customers.

    Natrol's business, post the Pure-Gar acquisition, consists of selling
branded vitamins and supplements through various channels of distribution as
well as the sale of bulk material to manufacturers/processors of
nutraceutical products.

    Natrol's primary channels of distribution include but are not limited to,
multi-level marketers, catalog sales companies, retailers and wholesalers who
sell to retailers, manufacturers of pills in encapsulated, soft-gel and
compressed pill form. Natrol anticipates expanding its channels of
distribution to infomercials, international, department stores and any and
all channels through which dietary supplements can be sold. Through the
acquisition of Pure-Gar we are also selling to a limited number of brokers
who re-sell to our primary channels of distribution. Natrol currently sells
product that is intended to eventually be sold as vitamins, nutraceutical &
herbal supplements or functional foods.

    We believe that BVP and Natrol agree that Natrol should have exclusively
within these primary channels of distribution where the intent of the Natrol
is to produce a vitamin, a nutraceutial or herbal supplement of functional
food. We believe it is the definite intent of the supply agreement to give
Natrol exclusive rights to sell bulk materials and or pills in their various
forms to any company that is manufacturing or packaging pills in their
various forms for sale as vitamins or nutraceutical herbs and supplements.

    Unfortunately, as with any supply agreement, there are gray areas of
crossover that cannot be defined precisely.

    One area of crossover would be if one of BVPs existing industrial
customers, let us say, Kellogg decided to enter the traditional vitamin and
supplement business. For purposes of

<PAGE>


illustration only, it would be Natrol's expectation that if Kellogg decided to
produce a Garlic Pill, BVP would inform Kellogg that it had to purchase its raw
material from the Natrol. However, it is clearly understood by Natrol that if
Kellogg decided to add Garlic or another BVP nutraceutical product to Total
Cereal, BVP would maintain all rights to sell directly to Kellogg.

    Natrol sees the biggest area of potential confusion to be functional
foods yet to be developed by BVP.

    Again, for purposes of illustration, let us say that BVP develops powder
or some other raw material mix (liquid, paste, etc.) to make a functional
food "power bar".

    It is clear that Natrol would have the rights to sell this mix to
marketers within its channels of distribution. This would include companies
like Pharmavite, Rexall Sundown, Herbalife, Avon, Walmart, Walgreen, etc. who
sell to wholesalers, retailers, or customers.

    However, it is also clear that BVP would sell the same mix to its
existing and developing customer base. Natrol understands that Lipton,
Campbell Soup or General Mills could decide to manufacture a power bar in
direct competition to Natrol and sell this power bar to Walmart, Walgreen,
and other retailers that are part of their individual distribution networks.

    The key element that has to be acknowledged as part of the spirit of this
agreement is that BVP would not sell this mix directly to Rexall sundown,
Pharmavite, Walgreen's, Herbalife, etc., i.e., customers who now and in the
future are part of Natrol's primary distribution channels.

    Natrol believes that in acknowledging this memorandum, both BVP and
Natrol are further acknowledging an understanding of the nuances of the
differentiation within the examples outlined above.

    As good business people, we will operate in good faith within the
guidelines of this letter. Should there be any honest disagreement in the
future, the parties will use there best efforts to resolve potential issues
informally but if necessary the parties will let an independent arbitrator
resolve the issue using the scope of this memorandum for guidance.
