Has anyone used probiotics in a body building capacity to encourage good gut bacteria the hypothesis being better nutrient bioavailability at the digestive level to enhance protein uptake and insulin production for more efficienr glycogen storage?

You want prebiotics NOT probiotics...

Both probiotics and prebiotics work to increase the colony size of the gut’s natural microflora. Bodybuilders can also benefit, as it helps you to digest large quantities of food more easily helping to provide a more efficient influx of energy and protein.
