Testosterone receptors are proteins in the brain and heart that receive messages from the hormone testosterone. This in turn helps regulate testosterone's function. The sex hormone is present in males more so than females, and it is increased during exercise. Strengthening testosterone receptors aids in moving the hormone throughout your body in healthy levels, which helps promote increased healing, libido and muscle strengthening. There are simple ways to strengthen testosterone receptors that anyone can do, and they will aid in healthy levels of testosterone throughout the body.

    Increase Zinc

  1. 1

    Eat pumpkin seeds every day, which is high in zinc. Zinc has been shown to increase testosterone receptors and increase testosterone levels. This is a great option for vegans and most vegetarians.

  2. 2

    Eat beef two to three times per week. Beef is high in zinc, and a source of complete protein.

  3. 3

    Eat yoghurt everyday to increase testosterone in the body by placing it in smoothies or eating it plain.

    Increase Testosterone Receptors With Exercise

  1. 1

    Lift weights two to three times per week. This will increase overall metabolism and aid in increased testosterone in the body, especially for men.

  2. 2

    Choose interval cardiovascular exercise, as it helps boost metabolism and increase testosterone levels much higher than any form of exercise by increasing human growth hormone.

  3. 3

    Cycle once or twice a week to release human growth hormone, which will increase testosterone receptors, in turn increasing testosterone levels.

Tips and warnings

  • Human growth hormone (HGH) is important for producing testosterone production, and exercise is crucial for increasing HGH, as is adequate sleep.
  • Avoid injury during exercise by stretching your muscles.
  • Eating too many foods high in zinc increases caloric intake, so be careful if you are watching your weight.
