Areca nuts (Betelnut) bulk shop - Delhi (India)

The Areca nut is wrapped with Betel leaf and chewed for its exhilarating lift.­ Betel quids chewing has been claimed to produce a sense of well-being, euphoria, heightened alertness, sweating, salivation, a hot sensation in the body and increased capacity to work.­

Just like alcohol, tobacco, coffee and sakau, Areca nut and Betel leaf are culturally-approved psychoactive drugs.­

The Areca nut, by association, is sometimes inaccurately called the "Betel nut".­
