Abstract
Studies of Bromeliaceae species have demonstrated the presence of a large variety of chemical constituents that have important biological activities such as: antimicrobial, antihelmintic, antinociceptive, antitumor, antiulcer and gastroprotective. Thus, this systematic review reports the studies in the literature about the biological activities and chemical composition of Brazilian Bromeliaceae species. The terms “Bromeliaceae”, “phytochemistry” and “pharmacology” were used to search articles in the databases LILACS, PUBMED, SCIELO, SCIENCE DIRECT and SCOPUS published until January 2016. From a total of 652 studies found, 14 met the inclusion and exclusion criteria and were selected for the research. Moreover, the present review identified 10 chemically defined natural molecules reported in the literature obtained from Brazilian Bromeliaceae species, belonging to the classes of flavonoids, coumaric acid derivatives and sterols. The data reviewed here suggest that there is a large chemical and pharmacological potential in species of Bromeliaceae, which justifies the interest in studying these plants.
