Can taking the following tablets be safe during lactation?

hi i have a question.. I just gave birth to my daughter who is 3 weeks oldnow .. Lately i been doin my kegal exercises but i also got these pills called manjakani aka oak gall which is a herb that rejuvenates the vaginal muscular cells with a rich blend of nutrients - Tannins, Tannic, Gallic acids, Vitamin A the crucial food supplements and C, Calcium, Iron, Protein and Carbohydrate to sustain the vaginal muscular cells and tissues for renewal and self-repairing routine. im just wondering if its safe to take these pils while breast feeding?

Active Ingredients:
Gambir – a powerful astringent that consists mainly of antioxidants catechin and catechutannic acid. Useful for arresting excessive mucous discharges.
Daun Jarak - used as an antihelminthic and purgative, to help improve bowel movement.
Akar Sarapat - as the name depicts, sarapat means "tighten" in the Malay Language. Commonly used in healing wounds and treating women with childbirth and birth-related injuries. Also used for the contraction of vaginal muscle and uterus.
Kunyit (Tumeric) – beneficial for hemorrhages, irregular menstruation and liver problems. Also prescribed for women after childbirth to stimulate and promote blood circulation. Very strong antioxidant to promote overall health and great skin!

1 ) First of all do not worry.

2 ) You can continue to take the treatment prescribed to you. Most of the ingredients are nutritional supplements and antioxidants, so that they are anyway beneficial to you.

3 ) I will also suggest you to take Iron and Calcium and protein supplements on daily basis at least for next 6 months.

I wish you a very happy Motherhood.
