In brief: Safe enough

Triphala is an herbal formula used in Aruvedic medicine often for bowel problems/relief of constipation.
It consists of at least three plants; it is not clear what chemical is responsible for it's effects. I would be more skeptical that it would provide any benefit for you, if the other things you list have not,more than I would be worried it was unsafe. You could try it without expecting too much
