Today I am going to talk to you humans about your friends that are with you all the time— bacteria! Did you know that the human body is made up of trillions of different types of bacteria? There are more bacteria cells living on and in the human body then there are people cells. Bacteria is essential to the lives of humans as well as dogs and other animals. They help with digestion, warding off infections, keeping your skin clean and many other amazing processes.

The main issue with these little guys starts when people do not eat right, get enough rest, take too many antibiotics or overuse antibacterial products.  When this happens the good bacteria get weak and allow bad bacteria to invade the body, causing a variety of illnesses.  This is called dysbiosis.  H3 recommends that you treat your bacteria the way that you want them to treat you, especially by eating the right food and getting plenty of rest.
