Trace elements are elements that are present in small concentrations (<1000 mg/kg) in living organisms. This definition includes all the elements except H, C, N, O, Na, Mg, P, S, Cl, K, and Ca. Despite their presence as only traces, they nonetheless affect biological processes positively as well as deleteriously.
