Sipponen andHarkonen (in Hypochlorhydric stomach: a risk condition for calcium  malabsorption and osteoporosis? SCANDINAVIAN JOURNAL OF GASTROENTEROLOGY 2010;45(2):133-138)  write about a cause of osteoporosis being malabsorption which can stem from lack of acid or any other risk conditions like atrophic gastritis, gastric surgery and high-dose, long-term use of antisecretroy drugs that markedly reduce acid secretions. The addition of HCl in a calcium product is recommended.
