thermogenesis

[thur′mōjen′əsis]
Etymology: Gk, thermē + genesis, origin
production of heat, especially by the cells of the body. thermogenetic, adj.

ther·mo·gen·e·sis

(thĕr'mō-jen'ĕ-sis)
The production of heat; specifically, the physiologic process of heat production in the body.
[thermo- + G. genesis, production]

thermogenesis

Heat production. Normal heat production results from the oxidation of food components; a sudden demand for heat causes heat production by shivering; abnormal thermogenesis from a breakdown of the heat-regulation mechanism (thermoregulation) is dangerous and sometimes fatal.

thermogenesis

the production of heat, especially within the animal body.

diet-induced thermogenesis
a portion of dietary calories in excess of those required for immediate energy requirements are converted to heat rather than stored as fat. Some types of obesity may be related to a defect in this mechanism.
neonatal thermogenesis
thermogenesis is relatively inefficient in neonates, especially piglets, so that it becomes very important to protect them from cold stress. Most of their heat gain comes from the metabolism of their stores of brown fat.
nonshivering thermogenesis
increased heat production due to enhancement of normal calorigenic metabolic processes.
shivering thermogenesis
much the fastest thermogenic process which the static body can use. Shivering is an involuntary function with a tremor rate of about 10 per second.

Some data indicate that the individual ingredients contained in thermogenic dietary supplements could play a role in enhancing energy expenditure, fat loss and exercise adaptations.
In this study, we investigated the effect of the thermogenic activation induced by orexin A on eating behavior.
Similarly long noncoding miRNAs, such as BATE1 and Blinc1, are required for the formation of beige and brown adipocytes through the production of related nucleoproteins that influence the activation of thermogenic genes [83].

The brown color comes from the large quantity of mitochondria present in the cell, which makes them thermogenic cells that protect animals against obesity and metabolic disease.

The last point was about VCO's thermogenic effect, which fuels the burning of body fat, hence increasing the metabolic rate and promoting belly fat loss.
In contrast, thermogenic adipose tissue defends against hypothermia and obesity through adaptive thermogenesis mediated by the regulated expression and activity of mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1).
The origin of methane in the subsurface can be biogenic, which tends to be produced from microbial breakdown of organic material at shallow depths and low temperatures (such as occurs in wetlands or carbon rich shales) or thermogenic, produced from abiotic degradation of organic matter buried for millions of years at great depths and temperatures.
Mechanisms that may contribute to the apparent satiety hierarchy include the composition of dietary proteins, higher thermogenic effects and post-absorptive small intestinal gluconeogenesis.
Thermogenic gas, in contrast, is formed at greater depths through thermal cracking of decomposed organic matter or oil into gas -- where molecular bonds are broken due to high heat and temperature -- suggesting higher costs in drilling and extraction.
