Resumo

 O papel dos produtos naturais, em especial os nutracêuticos, vem ganhando destaque nos últimos anos devido aos efeitos positivos em parâmetros relacionados à saúde. O açafrão é uma espécie originária do sudeste da Ásia e considerado uma preciosa especiaria. Além da principal utilização como condimento, possui substâncias com atividades antioxidante, antimicrobiana e corante, que lhe conferem possibilidade de emprego nas áreas de cosméticos, têxtil e alimentícia, sendo também muito utilizado nas medicinas tradicionais chinesa e indiana. Seu principal composto fenólico, a curcumina, tem sido amplamente estudado, por apresentar uma variedade de propriedades para a saúde, como efeitos antioxidantes, anti-inflamatórios, antivirais, antibacterianos, antidepressivos e anticancerígenos e, assim, potencial de ação contra várias doenças crônicas. Portanto, o objetivo do presente estudo foi revisar os efeitos do açafrão nos parâmetros biológicos e comportamentais, bem como sua utilização na manutenção da saúde e qualidade de vida dos indivíduos.
