>>are there enzyme systems that will convert DHA to ALA if the body needs it?

I don't know nor could I find anything to indicate this was true. The body does have the ability to convert DHA to EPA but I could not find evidence of converting DHA to ALA or EPA to ALA.

If anyone else knows of any, please post the data.

>>And does ALA by itself benefit us or is it just a foundation on which EPA and DHA are built?
