Traditional use of betel leaves
The leaves of the betel palm are chewed just like that in Asia, then just a small piece (about 1/4 to half) of one leaf is enough and very soon you can feel the pleasant energy spreading throughout the body. You can of course chew a larger amount to increase the effect, the body will tell itself very well when enough is enough. Frequent chewing of large amounts of betel leaves can cause ulcers to form in the mouth, so it is recommended to add a small amount of raw cane sugar or fennel seeds to neutralize and activate the alkaloids contained in betel leaves.
It is also possible to brew it as a tea, pour one to three leaves per cup of hot water and let it steep for about 15 minutes. This tea will help to energize a tired body and mind very quickly.
