Anava (from "anu", meaning an atom or an exceedingly small entity) is a state - the consciousness of the ego, the sense of "I" and "mine". This represents a sense of individuality and a separation from a general existence of any "divine plan". One of the three Buddhist malas or bondages: anava, karma and maya . The three malas or pashas are also explicitly discussed in the theology of Shaivite Hinduism . In Shaivism , anava is the cause of the individual soul's mistaken sense of separate identity from Universal God Siva , and the last bond broken before union or Self-Realization ( moksha ).
I'm running Anavar year round at 10mg per day with primobolan ace at about 30mg per day and low dose naltrexone as a non suppressive non injectable based androgen supplementation protocol. I am compiling research on the subject as well as experimenting on myself with appropriate bloodwork to show results and so far I'm not suffering from any shutdown (7 weeks in, Testosterone is ~5% lower than baseline. I think this approach is really good for quality of life and minor recovery benefits. Not going to put on a ton of muscle but it's a solid way, alongside of pharma GH per day, to boost performance in a life extension format protocol.
In the case of low-dose use however, I do think it is a correct conclusion that for most, low dose Anavar use is more effective for cutting than equal dosages of most other anabolic steroids . This may be partly or entirely from additive effect with natural testosterone: such oxandrolone use may not suppress such its production, the user may enjoy both the full effect of his natural testosterone and the effect of the oxandrolone. In contrast, low-dose testosterone or nandrolone use results in substantial suppression of natural testosterone, and so there is less total effect.
