I wouldn't be inclined to try it - not because of anything negative I have heard, because I haven't heard a lot, other than Dr OZ has supported it in his past; as he does with anything if payment for endorsement is involved.
The only other bits I have heard is that studies haven't been done on the average Joe Blog using the product - rather professional athletes.
If you want to lose belly fat (which is my understanding that it is aimed at mostly, and which this purports to do), then you are best to get the exercise in, and your body will take the fat off where it chooses. I would be inclined to just eat a healthy diet, within a healthy calorie range and get the exercise.
I understand that you feel obligated in a way because your aunt bought it for you, but that is the kind of help they should learn to NOT do. A lot of these sorts of things can have a negative effect on us, particularly if we are taking meds or just have a particular health condition, which others aren't always privy to.
Just my 2 cents worth!
