Polen advertises itself as a health food supermarket – which might give the impression that it is far more sizeable than in fact it is. Not to worry, Polen has a good stock and is fairly spacious when compared to the size of the average health food shop in Spain.
Polen have a range of supplements from iron to B12 to spirulina capsules, chlorella and daily multivitamins. They also stock teas and infusions along with some dried herb mixes that can be made into healthful brews. In fact they have a really good range of herbs if you have an ailment you want to fix without running to Western medicine.
They also have wholewheat cookies and treats, some of which are gluten free and some of which are made without sugar, using maltitol instead (I’m not sure how good for you maltitol is, but in Spain it is the favoured alternative to the white stuff.)
Despite having only one vegetarian restaurant (Vegitalia) Fuengirola is particularly well equipped with organic shops and herboristerias. You might also want to try Biocasa, Bionatura Ekotienda, Naturalis, Nutrisalud, or two herberisterias in the main covered market (near the Renfe): Dapocris and Herboristeria Mercado.
