Cofactors are molecules that are required for an enzyme to function. An enzyme, just for clarity, is a protein with catalytic function, meaning it can change the rate of a chemical reaction.
Vitamins are typically cofactors. For example, your body requires folate, a B vitamin, by enzymes that catalyze the synthesis of certain amino acids, such as glycine, that are used in production of your body's proteins.
Coenzyme A is also another very important cofactor used in a wide range of metabolic reactions.
