Supplements are not regulated by the fda so there really is no guarantee that the claims are true- or that the product is manufactured according to any kind of standard.

Protein: Protein. You should eat 1 gram for every pound of ideal body weight. For instance, if your ideal body weight should be 180 pounds, then you should eat 180 grams of protein a day...As long as you don't have any kidney disease.
