    Lysine OK, Gingko No-Go

    My experience has been that L-Lysine has no ill effects on my GERD. Gingko Biloba tends to worsen my GERD over time. I suspect the problem with gingko might be that it is thought to promote improved circulation via vasodilation through the nitric oxide pathway. If true, then it could worsen GERD in a manner similar to nitrates. Whether that is true or not, gingko biloba made my GERD worse so I stay away from it.

    You'll need to find out by trying these, of course. We are all different. I never used L-Lysine, but I did use gingko biloba, and it did not bother me.
