Cardispan Review - Does This Injectable Really Work? Are side effects and lack of availability deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.7 / 5.0


It’s been a long journey but I feel I’m now qualified to advise you on whether or not to use Cardispan. I spent many hours researching and creating a detailed review, focusing specifically on the side effects, ingredients, customer care and clinical studies. Plus I read all kinds of user comments and dieter reviews that are posted online. At this point I summarized and condensed the information to give you the bottom line.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Cardispan with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need To Know

To begin, Cardispan is an injectable that is sometimes used for weight loss purposes. It can be injected into problem areas such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and hips. Put simply, this product is intended to help reduce body fat. It contains a key ingredient called Levocarnitine (L-Carnitine). However, this is a prescription drug, and it is not approved by the FDA. Furthermore, Cardispan is not made in the United States. From what we gathered, this injectable comes from countries such as Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. Unfortunately there is no official website for Cardispan, and no official price is posted.

From what we can tell, Cardispan has been around since at least 2010, and it is still available through some online dealers such as bonanza.com for $59.99. Furthermore, some positive user comments are posted on the web for Cardispan, but read on…

Side Effects – A Problem?

We are concerned about the side effects Cardispan can lead to. According to our Research Editor, “Cardispan can cause nasty adverse reactions such as nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, body odor, diarrhea, kidney malfunction, allergic reactions, and even seizures.”

One user stated, “A lot of nausea and diarrhea with this stuff. I’m not so sure it’s safe.”

“I should have known injecting myself with something from Mexico was a bad idea. Causes diarrhea and stomachache. No weight loss though,” commented another person.

Scroll below for one of the best products we’ve seen over the last year.

Lack of Availability!

Since Cardispan is not actually legal as a weight loss product in the United States, it can be a bit difficult to come by. One customer said, “No one actually sells this stuff, so why is it talked about as a weight loss option? Can’t find it anywhere!”

“Very hard to find Cardispan. Found it once while vacationing in Mexico, but can’t get it here in the states,” revealed another individual.

Our intensive research has shown if there is a particular part of a weight loss product or diet drug that is especially burdensome or troubling (side effects, lack of availability, fat price tag) the likelihood of real weight loss for the long run is minimal. Therefore if Cardispan is difficult for many people to find/buy, this could be a major dilemma.

What About Actual Science?

In order to get behind a diet product, we at DietSpotlight need to see some solid science that supports the product’s weight loss claims. As for Cardispan, there is no real clinical research that backs up this injectable as an effective weight loss aid. In fact, it’s not even prescribed for weight loss in the US.

The Bottom Line: Does Cardispan Work?

Now the moment you’ve been waiting for: our bottom line on Cardispan. First of all, we like that this injectable is available through some online dealers, and we did find a few positive comments about it posted on the web. But we have some reservations about Cardispan because it’s not backed by any solid science as a weight loss aid. Furthermore, we’re concerned about the safety of this injectable, since some users have experienced unpleasant side effects.

If you’d really like to shed some pounds, we advise you to select a diet product that contains clinically proven ingredients, does not require any injections, is easy to purchase online and comes with excellent customer service.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains four powerful ingredients, which have been proven in published clinical studies to help increase fat loss and elevate metabolism. We can’t find any mention of harmful side effects and customer comments around the web show people are seeing substantial results.

The makers of Leptigen are so certain of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Cardispan is an injectable weight loss formula that claims to pinpoint exact areas of the body in which fat, or rather excess fat, is a problem. Generally, the areas in which this product is said to work is the thighs, the hips, and the abdomen and it has claims on its website such as "giving you the body that you have always wanted."

Despite the fact that this product has been claimed to be a very effective weight loss formula, there is actually very little information on Cardispan itself. There is no official website so the only places in which you can buy this product is from online auction sites and a couple of steroid websites whose reputations are questionable.

List of ingredients

There is no real definitive list of ingredients for Cardispan on the internet. There are a few mentions of one particular ingredient and that is L-Carnitine. It has been reported that this is an essential amino acid that helps to move fat to places where the body can then use it and convert it into energy. However, there is no scientific research to back claims such as these. Combine this fact with the nonexistent list of ingredients, and you may find that it may be worth having another look for weight loss supplements with better information than this one provides.

Product Features

Cardispan lists a few main claims such as fat burning and the prevention of storing fat but these claims do not seem to be backed up by any reliable sources and upon further research, there seems to be nothing in the way of client testimonials aside from those that are on weight loss forums.

A list of ingredients is impossible to find and the fact that this product is injected into the body could prove it to be rather dangerous. It has also not been proven by any clinical studies and it's very difficult to find any information on this product at all.

  • We were unable to find any advantages to using Cardispan.


  • This product requires you to inject it into your "problem areas".
  • We can't find a full list of ingredients.
  • There is no official website for Cardispan.
  • We are unsure who the manufacturer of Cardispan actually is.


Cardispan and a couple other injectable "spot treatment" products seem unreliable and a little scary for something you would use yourself. If you are really interested in an injectable fat burner that targets certain areas, we highly recommend that you consult your doctor and refrain from buying anything like this over the Internet.

If you are looking for a good, safe, and easy to use weight loss product, we suggest you find a weight loss supplement that contains one or more thermogenic ingredients to help you burn weight throughout the day.

    I am very please with my results. I have not had any side affects. Where can I find this product in pill and I also wonder if it would have the same effect. I have lost 10 pounds and for me that is a lot for a short period of time.



    How do I buy some?

    I used a couple of cycles (around 4) in different timeframes and after the first one I was impressed. I lost 2 full sized without doing an extreme cardio routine or following any retarded diet. It burns a little bit (women will say that burn like hell lol), but beauty has its price lol. I just ordered a new cycle to use it before summer time to get my six pack back. If you combine it with a nice and simple diet (just eating the right food at the right time) and some cardio right after the dosis, it will work really quick. Thanks and if you have any questions just sk!!!!



    How often do you use it and how much at each time?



    Where can I buy this?

    Has anyone tried this and actually saw significant and fast results? Thank you.

    hi I need to know if Cardispan has any kind of drug that could show up in a drug screen test.





  • 7

    How many ml do I administer each time I inject?


    Alexy Pagan

    Each amp should have enough for 16-20 small spots. Use a slin needle, and pinch your stomach fat and inject subcutaneaously. I personally divide each amp into 10 injections applying all around the area I want to burn. Now, I’m a fit guy so the area I’m applying the cardispan is not big at all. At this moment I have a 16% body fat and I’m going down to 10% so I can get ripped. In other cases where the fat % is higher, it will required twice the amount, more cycles, and more square area to cover.

    Yes i use it, it works i buy it from a friend of mine that goes to mexico..

    Is it safe to use cardispan kids? Its not an injection. You see my son is seven has a tyroid problem nd wieghts 140 he just wont stop eating eve when i know he is full.



    a thyroid problem won’t cause him to overeat like that. extreme overeating in children is more likely to be caused by an emotional/psychological cause. have you taken him to a psychologist?

    Does anyone know anyone who knows how to apply cardispan? I bought the injections but am afraid of applying them mysel?

    I just started using it. We bought it from a personal trainer who buys it from a lady that gets it in mexico. So far no side affects and it did it in my stomach and it burned only for a little while. The trainer said to Inject it in you butt because its your biggest muscle and will disperse the chemical to all the problem areas. how? no idea, but I think I’ll just stick to putting it in the area i think need it. Good Luck!!!



    what size of needle to inject in the buttocks,and how often and how much? thanks

    I am barely going to start administering the injection my ?? Is does it burn or have any neg effects on my injection site??



    This is not a dangerous product for Carnitine is naturallyy produced by your body. Cardispan is normally used for people who suffer obesity or people with carnitine deficiencies. It is produced in Mexico by Grossman Laboratories. The only side effect known is slight diarrhea.

    It does burn when you first inject it, but it goes away after a few minutes.
