Enzymes of trace elements are an important part of certain biological and chemical reactions. They work in harmony with proteins and often with certain other co enzymes. They attract substrate molecules and enable their conversion to a specific end product. Some trace elements are involved in redox reactions. Modern day diet, comprising of refined foods is a cause of concern, as it may not have a sufficient amount of these trace elements. Dietary supplements may be required to combat this shortage. The present paper therefore discusses trace elements, and its effects in unraveling biological problems and challenges. Thus, a comprehensive understanding of these trace elements is essential and significant for disease control and for maintaining optimal health.
