In brief: See below

First, Folic Acid and zinc are two different minerals.
Therefore, if you take a Folic Acid pill, it has no zinc or anything else in it unless the bottle specifically says so in the ingredients. Second, you can get more than enough zinc from leafy green vegetables and fish, among other healthy food choices. If you need more zinc for some reason, you can take a multi-vitamin or zinc tablet.
