SLC6A4 Stress Gene, Fatigue, and Hidden Inflammation

Written by Joe Cohen, BS | Last updated:

Did you know stress may not come from your environment, job, or lifestyle?

There’s actually a single gene responsible for transporting serotonin in your brain. This gene influences how happy you feel and how stressed you are. So if you often feel stressed or “down,” it’s likely because of this gene.

The SLC6A4 Gene

As a result of COVID and a halted economy, stress is higher than ever before.

If you have low-activity variants of SLC6A4, you are more sensitive to stress. This is because the SLC6A4 gene encodes a serotonin transporter protein. So a low-activity variant SLC6A4 may be the hidden culprit of your stress!

When you’re stressed, cortisol floods your bloodstream. Cortisol then decreases serotonin signaling. This endless cycle is why so many people feel stressed all day.

The lockdowns, working from home, and health crises make the stress even worse…

SLC6A4 And Stress = Fatigue

If stress persists, you’ll feel more tired. Stress and fatigue are so closely related, they often arise together. Research even shows that stress can sometimes lead to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

If you ever feel stressed and worn out, it doesn’t always have to do with your diet, exercise, or sleep. A low-activity variant SLC6A4 gene contributes heavily to stress… And in turn, may cause you to feel tired, foggy, and worn down.

But there is good news! Understanding your genes helps you combat persistent stress and fatigue.

You can alter your lifestyle to offset a low-activity variant SLC6A4 gene.
