I've seen a couple very small ones but not much variety. Where do all the bodybuilders shop for vitamins?

Rossmann have some, and there's a vitamin and healthfood shop on the bottom level of Zloty Taras. There are plenty of bodybuilder shops - a popular one is in the corridors under Dworzec Centralny.

In any Pharmacy (Apteka). They are everywhere. You can find all kinds of vitamin combinations.

But not everyone knows that some vitamins/minerals are toxic if you take too much (esp. vit. A and D). High doses of iron can cause life-threatening intoxication in esp. children. There are many peope who take harmful doses of vitamins without knowing it.

You could try Vega - there is a small (cheap) veggie/vegan restaurant and a wholefood shop. Maybe?

It's round the back of Kino Femina, there is also a little alleyway leading to it (probably easier to find via the alleyway) from Jana Pawła just past (I think!) Świat Herbata, certainly past the kiosk.

If you can not find what you want in Warsaw, try Uk ebay, they ship to Poland no problem and not extra taxes or hassle as its all the EU.

The only problem might be differences of opinion within each respective country.
For example, I know in Ireland that St John's Wort is a

Popular herbal medicine St John's Wort will remain available by prescription only, despite continuing calls for it to be sold in shops again.

From here irishhealth.com/article.html?level=4&id=384
But you can buy it without prescription in most E.U. countries.

I do not know if any things are prescription only in Poland that is not in other E.U. countries but I thought this difference was worth a mention.
