I got hooked on "Skytime" when I went on Japan Airlines. Does anyone know where I can find this delicious beverage online ?

    "Sky Time is a unique drink made especially for JAL"

    Didn't you kind of answer your own question?

    Most likely for replenishing electrolytes. Sounds like a delicious more natural tasting Gatorade. I bet this kind of drink would sell well in the States at a Whole Foods.

    Desalinizing it takes out all the nastiness and keeps all the nutritional value.

    Here's their website, where you can inquire about sales. Unfortunately that probably means you'd need to buy it in bulk. If that's the case maybe you can find a local Japanese or Asian market that would be willing to carry it.

    chemical or thermal desalination removes all suspended minerals... not just salt... so how does is this better than tap water at this point?

    Not entirely true. Desalinating water is a process that is regulated and altered to produce a specific "quality" of water - elements such as magnesium, calcium, chromium, phosphorous, and etc, are treated so that they remain in the water. The market benefit over getting fresh water that's "imbued" with these elements is that these specific ingredients were regulated by nature, rather than tossed in, and that man's intervention only allowed it to be drinkable. Leaving these naturally regulated elements in has specific taste and health benefits, such as as blood pressure regulation, insulin production, and so on and so forth.

    Oh please. I am sick and tired of people equating natural with good. Do you have any references or know of any well-conducted scientific studies to prove that consuming partially desalinatied water actually does help regulate blood pressure and Insulin production? Or is it simply what you read in some -natural-is-good-for-you- throwaway magazine. You know what else is natural? Rattlesnake venom, HIV, Lava, Earthquakes and Syphilis. All are creations of mother nature.

    Now stop being such a zombie and start to question such garbage when you come across it. Ask for evidence behind claims. Don't just go along because its printed in a glossy magazine so it must be true.

    Sheesh some people are so gullible. Next thing I know you'll be telling me that Oscillococcinium actually cures the flu. Pffft.

    P.S.:Regulated by nature is better than manmade because we just tossed in the ingredients? How can you really say something like that with a straight face? Better how? What does nature do that man cannot do that makes the 'natural' way better? Do you have any scientific explanation for such a claim or is it more 'natural-makes-me-feel-warm-and-fuzzy' bullshit? How about a 100% natural scorpion in your pants? Its natural so must be good for you right?

    Get over yourself. You're just making yourself look like more of a fool than anyone else here. I suggest you stay out of the H/A advice forum. For good. Just don't come back, and don't post here, ever.
    I may like a specific product because I like the attitude they're selling (i'm not unaware of it), but atleast I cna explain myself without being a complete dunce. Formulate straight arguments with the adults, then come back to us. Otherwise go yell alone in the corner.

    Even though this does not pertain to the topic at hand I have to throw my support behind you simply to balance off the other previous conter posts. You are absolutely right that in principle unadulterated stuff is better for you than synthesized things, but this whole eco-fad gets taken to whole new levels. Since when did seawater have any good nutritional value for you anyways, especially anything that would regulate blood pressure and/or insulin production (don't mean to trample on the poor guy here!). I guess what I want to reiterate is that you always have to ask questions about claims authors make in magazines. They will often claim that "Studies have shown that XYZ has shown to have an effect on ABC" but these studies are not published in respected scientific journals and frequently funded by the company that hopes to sell the product in question.

    X3x3non and BetelgeusePDX are absolutely right.

    That being said, it is only tangentially related to the question in the OP, so get back on topic.

    Alright. I apologize for being rude in my earlier post.

    I still agree with the message. There are many people out there that will happily sell you snake oil and take your hard earned money while making you feel good doing it. Ask questions. Of yourself, of the seller. Ask for evidence behind their claims. Too many people are hoodwinked out of their money by scumbags selling lies. If we follow along we only empower them.

    /me gets off soapbox.

    And apologies for taking this post on a tangent. :(

    No, don't get me wrong, I agree with you entirely. I just felt like the tone you took was a little over the top (and in fairness, I've been bopped over the head for snapping at you myself instead of expressing that through the proper channels). Truce? :D
