Abstract: Plant-based systems continue to play an essential role in healthcare, and their use by different cultures has been extensively documented. Baccharis trimera, popularly known as carqueja, is a plant widely distributed in South America and has been traditionally used for treating several diseases particularly associated with hepatic and gastric disorders. The present study aimed to provide a general review of the available literature on phytochemical and biological data related to the species B. trimera as a potential source of new compounds with biological activity. Considering phytochemical studies, flavonoids, terpenes and chlorogenic acids were the main classes of compounds identified in aerial parts which were correlated with their biological activities such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, gastric and hepatic-protector, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and aid in weight loss.
