There’s several natural supplements for cystitis that could be useful for preventing bladder infections and also for fighting off active infections. 90% of bacterial cystitis are caused by E. coli bacteria. The other 10% are usually caused by other strains. Therefore, appropriate supplements should be chosen for the type of bacteria that is present.
