Areca palms, which grow in tropical regions of the Pacific, Asia, and eastern Africa, are the source of the betel nut or areca nut. It is reported to have both stimulating and sedative effects and is typically chewed along with other narcotics like cigarettes. Betel nut chewing is a common family custom that is ingrained in the social fabric of many cultures.
