Brief Answer: Cranberry juice is better than ethical nutrients Detailed Answer: I just checked there is no robust evidence that says any benefits of ethical nutrients against bladder infection. If you wish to prevent/avoid bladder infection during pregnancy I suggest to take cranberry juice which is better than ethical nutrients. Nitrofurantoin and sulphonamides are the best antibiotics if you have evidence of urinary/ bladder infection during pregnancy. YOu need to consultant doctor if you need antibiotics.
