Dose of Betel Nut in Medicine
Medicinally betel-nuts are used in urinary disorders and as an aphrodisiac. The Bhavaprakasa gives a preparation called Rativallava Pugapaka. It is a confection made of betel-nuts boiled in milk, with the addition of a number of aromatic and stimulant substances supposed to have aphrodisiac properties. Sometimes datura seeds and the leaves of Cannabis sativa are added to this confection when it is called Kamesvara Modaka.
Betel-nuts are also used as vermifuge. Their dose should be one-fourth tola rubbed into a paste with tolas of fresh lemon juice.
