I believe that there is charge conservation in chemical reactions; therefore, electrons and protons would be conserved throughout a chemical reaction because the atoms on each side of the equation are balanced.
Electrons and protons have mass as well so based off of the law of conservation of mass, the number of electrons and protons must stay the same in a chemical equation. That's just one way to think about it, because there's also charge conservation as well.
