Why muscles of heat are called involuntary muscled?
Asked in Muscular System, Nervous System
What action is controlled by involuntary muscles?
There are several actions made by involuntary muscles such as the pumping of the heart, the expanding and contracting of blood vessels moving blood throughout the body and shivering which are involuntary muscle contractions that created thermal energy to heat up the body when its cold. Digestion is one. Breathing is another.

How would you describe the muscular system?
The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body. The muscular system in vertebrates is controlled through the nervous system, although some muscles (such as the cardiac muscle) can be completely autonomous. There are three distinct types of muscles: skeletal muscles, cardiac or heart muscles, and smooth (non-striated) muscles. Muscles provide strength, balance, posture, movement and heat for the body to keep warm. CARDIAC MUSCLE: Heart muscles are distinct from skeletal muscles because the muscle fibers are laterally connected to each other. Furthermore, just as with smooth muscles, they are not controlling themselves. Heart muscles are controlled by the sinus node influenced by the autonomic nervous system. SMOOTH MUSCLE: Smooth muscles are controlled directly by the autonomic nervous system and are involuntary, meaning that they are incapable of being moved by conscious thought. Functions such as heart beat and lungs (which are capable of being willingly controlled, be it to a limited extent) are involuntary muscles but are not smooth muscles.

Why does the human body need muscles?
For many reasons. To list a few: -To provide movement. Without muscles, our bones couldn't move. -To provide shape and protect vital organs. Muscles cover your belly and chest, and provide a cushion to outside forces. -To provide heat. Movement, whether voluntary or involuntary (shivering) helps create and maintain body heat. -To help bloodflow. The contraction and relaxation of muscles, especially in the legs, helps move blood through the venous system and back to the heart. - To help contain and control the size of "pipes" and other hollow spaces, like blood vessels, airways, and the intestines.

What part of the human body makes heat?
In general, the entire human body generates heat, but the majority of it is created by the muscles. The body runs on chemical energy, which is released, one of the by products is heat. All of the muscles will generate heat. The brain, the digestive process and the other organs generate some of the heat in their operation.
