A carbohydrate is a large biological molecule or macromolecule consisting of carbon (C) , hydrogen(H) , and oxygen (O). The carbohydrates (saccharides) are divided into four chemical groups: monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides.

Proteins are large biological molecule or macromolecule consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. A protein contains at least one long polypeptide. A proteins lifespan is measured in terms of its half life and convers a wide range. They can exist for minutes or years

Lipids are a group of naturally occurring molecules that include fats, waxes, steeples,fat- soluble vitamins. Lipids may be broadly defined as hydrophobic or amphiphile small molecules.

Nucleic acids

Nucleic acids are macromolecules or large biological molecules essential for all known forms of life. Nucleic acids which include DNA and RNA are made from monomers known as nucleotides.
