Demand for bears' gall bladders is increasing day by day, but people wonder what the uses of a bear’s gall bladder are?

The demand for the different parts of a bear, including its gall bladder, is increasing day by day and this is putting this creature into the brink of extinction. The value of the various parts of the bear have made it more valuable dead than alive, and positive steps should be taken to ensure that this stops before the bear becomes extinct.

The most demand for the various bear products comes from Asia, where people in China and Korea etc, eat the different parts of the bear for different purposes. The gall bladder of a bear is used for making medicines, which are said to cure different illnesses including fever, liver diseases, convulsions, diabetes and heart diseases. Due to these reasons, the gall bladder of an average bear can command as much as $3,400 in Asia.

People also consume the soup of bear’s paws, believing that doing so will give them the vigor of a bear.
