That's exactly the problem, taking zinc close to a meal where canola oil is one of the ingredients and I'm sick for two or three days. The symptoms are worse than the flu. Canola oil does this with or without zinc only that the symptoms are milder if the zinc is avoided. I only take the zinc supplement every other day and as long as there's no canola oil with it there's no problem and never has been.

DanRo: It might be related to copper status, messing with that can make you feel seriously ill, and changing zinc intake can directly affect copper status. I'm not sure but if canola affects copper status, but if it does that combined with zinc might do the trick, especially if the person has Wilson's or otherwise has issues with ceruloplasmin.

The brand Opti-L-Zinc is a copper/zinc combo to maintain balance although from what I understand the type of zinc used: L-monomethionine has no affect on copper absorption.

For me it's the canola oil; the zinc appears to make the symptoms worse but ultimately it's the oil causing the distress. The solution has been to simply avoid it as much as possible and everything's back to normal.

FYI copper also elicits nausea, however this may not be what is going on with you.

I avoid most seed products, like canola (rapeseed) oil. It's naturally promoted by the industry as healthy, but then, "the industry" promotes a lot of unhealthy things. 

I use mostly cold- or expeller-pressed coconut oil, regular olive oil, and bacon renderings, butter, or ghee in my kitchen. 
If I delve off into another oil - on extremely rare occasion - it's peanut oil. I'm a southern girl; I can't help it! 
Sad
But we rarely, if ever, eat fried things. Once or twice a year I'll do up some chicken or chicken-fried steak.
