I have problems with digestion(acid reflux, ibs etc) and for the first time i tried bone broth and i saw good results. I will drink 3-4 times everyday but  the taste is really bad. It's like drinking a lamb. Maybe add some lemon juice before i drink it?

Try this stock recipe (from Ancel Keys Eat Well and Stay Well)

1 cracked veal knuckle

3 lb ribs, brisket or other soup meat

1 T salt

Place veal knuckle and meat in a large saucepan and sprinkle with salt; allow to stand for 1 hour. Cover with 5 pints of cold water, bring slowly to a boil, and allow to simmer, covered, for 3 hours. Vegetables [carrots, onions celery, lettuce, leftover meat are suggested] used for seasoning may be added for the last hour of cooking.

Strain soup, chill, and remove fat which congeals on top. The stock is now ready.

For convenient storage reduce volume of stock to 1/2 by boiling in an open saucepan. Cool to room temperature, then freeze in ice cube trays.

As a Paleo version of this you might want to leave some or all of the fat in, or salvage it for separate cooking. But the use of veal and beef is pretty critical IMO. Some of the worst meat I've ever eaten was greasy lamburgers. The awful lanolin flavor of lamb fat filmed the inside of my mouth and stayed with me for an hour afterwards.
