What role does alpha linolenic play in the body?

α-Linolenic acid, an n−3 fatty acid, is a member of the group of essential fatty acids (EFAs), so called because they cannot be produced within the body and must be acquired through diet. Most seeds and seed oils are much richer in an n−6 fatty acid, linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is also an EFA, but it, and the other n−6 fatty acids, compete with n−3s for positions in cell membranes and have very different effects on human health. (See Essential fatty acid interactions.)α-Linolenic acid can only be obtained by humans through their diets because the absence of the required 12- and 15-desaturase enzymes makes de novo synthesis from stearic acid impossible. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5, n−3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6, n−3) are readily available from fish oil and play a vital role in many metabolic processes. These can also be synthesized by humans from dietary α-linolenic acid, but with an efficiency of only a few percent.[11] Because the efficacy of n−3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC-PUFA) synthesis decreases down the cascade of α-linolenic acid conversion, DHA synthesis from α-linolenic acid is even more restricted than that of EPA.[12][13]Linoleic acid (LA; 18:2, n−6) is generally assumed to reduce EPA synthesis because of the competition between α-linolenic acid and LA for common desaturation and elongation enzymes.[citation needed]Studies have found evidence α-linolenic acid is related to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.[14][15]A 2005 study found that daily administration of α-linolenic acid significantly reduced both self-reported anxiety, stress levels, and objective measured cortisol levels in college age students.[16]A large 2006 study found no association between total α-linolenic acid intake and overall risk of prostate cancer.[17] Multiple studies[18][19] have shown a relationship between alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is abundant in linseed oil, and an increased risk of prostate cancer. This risk was found to be irrespective of source of origin (e.g. meat, vegetable oil).[20] A recent (2009) metastudy, however, found evidence of publication bias in earlier studies, and concluded that if ALA contributes to increased prostate cancer risk, the increase in risk is quite small.[21]Research has also suggested a major neuroprotective effect of α-linolenic acid in in vivo models of both global ischemia and KA-induced epilepsy;[22] however, if sourced from flax seed oil, residues may have adverse effect due to its content of neurotoxic cyanogen glycosides and immunosuppressive cyclic nonapeptides.[23]A 2011 longitudinal study of over 50,000 women, conducted at Harvard University, over a period of ten years, found that a higher intake of α-Linolenic acid (combined with a lower intake of linoleic acid) was positively associated with a significant reduction in depression in the same group (the same study also found that by contrast an intake of EPA and DPA found in fish oils did not reduce depression

How is the recommended daily intake for essential oil determined?

There is no Recommended Daily Intake for fats and oils generally. However there is adequate intake for the essential oils. As a case in point, Linoleic acid which is the only essential n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid has an adequate intake determined by the median intake in the United States (where its deficiency is non-existent in healthy individuals). that level is 17 grams daily for healthy males and 12 grams daily for healthy females.
