Areca catechu


Betel Nut (Areca catechu)



Dried betel nut is a stimulant and an astringent.

It is chewed to increase the flow of Saliva, lesson perspiration, sweeten the breath, strengthen the gums and produce mild exhilaration. Areca nuts are often chewed in a mixture with betel leaves and lime (which is an activator), which is how they came to be called betel nuts, even though they do not come from the betel plant. The active ingredient is arecoline, a mild central nervous system stimulant. Its widespread use and availability across India, Thailand, Indonesia and other Asian cultures, makes the betel nut the most widely used stimulant in the world. Arecoline can improve learning and memory as well as counteracting intestinal parasites.
