What is Thermogenesis?

Thermogenesis is the process of producing heat in living organisms - including humans. And depending on your physical situation, your body will either be working to generate heat, or dissipate heat, which helps to keep you in thermogenic equilibrium. Many factors can influence this equilibrium, and two of the biggest are food and activity (exercise).

We all know that when we start exercising, we start to feel warmer. And usually, the harder we exercise, the warmer we feel. This is called the thermic effect of exercise. After hard exercise, this thermic effect can last for many hours, and it's a telltale sign that your metabolism is running at a higher rate, burning more calories, and slowly eating away your fat stores.

Certain nutrients are also known to increase thermogenesis. Protein is a classic example. The simple function of digesting protein (because it's quite difficult to digest relative to carbs and fat), burn quite a lot of energy. In fact, up to about 30% of the calories of protein are used up just to digest that protein!

Other nutrients are known to raise your metabolism and increase longer-term calorie burning. Food derived ingredients like caffeine, green tea extract, cayenne pepper, and many other plant compounds have long been associated with increased metabolic rate and higher calorie burn. These ingredients most often form the basis of "Thermogenic" products used to help support healthy fat processing metabolism.
