For many teachers, the new school year brings tight schedules, lunches on the run, and constant exposure to germs. But one company is determined to help keep teachers healthier this year: Health by Association has introduced Just for Teachers, a new dietary supplement designed to combat the unique challenges of the classroom.

Just for Teachers is the first-ever supplement designed for a specific and particularly important profession. Just for Teachers combines all the essential vitamins and minerals with a special anti-stress and energizing herb blend, extra lutein to maintain healthy vision, key ingredients to help
keep mental focus sharp, and four powerful immune system-enhancing herbs.

"I have been taking two of the vitamins every day for a week now and I just realized that I am not dragging by 3 p.m. I don't even yawn at the end of the day anymore," said Sue Ross, a fourth grade teacher from Mars, Pa. "I must admit, I was skeptical, but Just For Teachers does seem to be helping with my energy level."

Just for Teachers is currently available online exclusively at or by calling (888) 269-5579.
