Moreover those who had the betel leaves, they wont like eat anything further and their tongue would turn reddish and also becomes numb for a while. The numbness wont allow us to eat further or we wont feel the taste of even good food. That is the reason being so , after having full good meal, people go for betel leaves chewing. Moreover it acts as a mouth freshener and removes bad odor inside the mouth.
