Introduction: the current society has been involved in activities that require less energy expenditure, this type of activity that requires energy expenditure <1.5 METs, excluding sleep, is called sedentary behavior and is independently associated with physical activity to deleterious health factors , as metabolic syndrome. Objective: to investigate, through a systematic review, the effects of sedentary behavior on the metabolic syndrome and its components in adults. Methodology: This is a systematic review, using the Trip Database databases through the following descriptors: adults; sedentary behavior or screen time or sedentary life style; cardiometabolic risk or cardiovascular risk or metabolic risk score, published between 2013 and 2018. Results: Some cross-sectional studies show a greater chance of developing metabolic syndrome when sedentary time is increased. However, most sedentary time intervention studies with mild physical activity or posture change do not have a significant effect on cardiometabolic markers. Conclusion: According to the results of the selected studies, there is an association between high sedentary time and the development of metabolic syndrome and its components in adults.
