I have a follow up question. Are there any tell-tale signs that probiotics is or is not working?

If your digestion is already working efficiently, using probiotics will not make a noticeable difference but will be a good preventative measure. If you tend to get sick periodically, chances are using probiotics will lessen both the duration of your illnesses, and the frequency of how often you come down with illness.

If you have problems with carbohydrate metabiolism and regularity (fiber digestion), you will definitely notice a difference, but it might take awhile. The same goes for any yeasty (candida) symptoms you may be dealing with.

Thanks Jibreel. I guess I won't see a lot of added benefit because I rarely get sick (knock on wood) and don't seem to have fiber digestion problems - not that I know of, anyways.

I know that I do have a problem metabolizing uric acid, as I've gotten my second case of gout in the last few days. The first was about 1.5 years ago. Any ideas on how to "train" or help the body to metabolize uric acid? My dad has always had gout as well.
