I thought that maybe i needed to supplement zinc and found that it has twice made me vomit and feel very nauseated. Does this mean i dont need zinc?

Never made me puke, and I consume it nearly daily. If anything, it makes me feel awesome.

Why raw? It's not as if zinc degrades when heated?

Maybe it was just the coconut oil and coffee that made him puke. Ugh.

& it could also be related to the copper (& may be lack of food in stomach as well)...

when i took 2 mg of copper in the gluconate form in 2 x capsules (from 2 x jarrow zinc balance), it use to repeat on me & i could taste it (not a good taste).

so i switched to a tablet form 2.5mg copper from copper gylcinate, & did not get the same problem (i take one every other day)

try taking after a decent meal, or later in the day after a few meals.

coconut oil on an empty stomach can also cause vomiting in some people (but i'm guessing you have already ruled that out).

So i've been taking Nature's Life Zinc 30 mg/ Zinc picolinate Plus 2mg copper. This is all just one pill from one bottle and says its a once daily.

Does the zinc taste bad in the mouth? That may indicate you don't need it.

Supplemental Zinc is hard on the stomach. Consume with some food and that should help with the nausea.

Better yet, stick to zinc-rich foods: oysters, non-organ red meat, nuts, etc…

Some forms of zinc can cause stomach distress. Consider a zinc chelate.

Or raw oysters. Check your local asian market to get 'em on the cheap. Farmed or wild doesn't really matter for oysters.
