Need help drinking more water, but hate its bland flavor? The Right Cup might just be the answer you’ve been hoping for.
It works by tricking your brain into thinking you’re drinking something fruity. How do you trick your brain like that? By manipulating your sense of smell.
According to their website, “The sensation of flavor is a combination of smell, taste, and sight. While the tongue only tastes 5 sensations (sweet, bitter, sour, salty and umami), it is the sense of smell that’s responsible for 80% of the flavor experience.”
The Right Cup has truly put some fun into drinking water.
It’s the world’s first fruit-flavored-cup specifically designed to get people to drink more water.
While the idea may seem simple, The Right Cup entailed six years of thorough research.
Your brain identifies flavors using two main senses: taste and smell.
Inserted into The Right Cup is FDA approved fruit scent and flavor.
Your nose picks up the fruity scent, while your tongue senses the hint of a sweet taste, this tricking the brain into thinking you’re drinking something with flavor.
The Right Cup was successfully funded on over on Indiegogo, and you can buy them over on their website.
