In brief: Not at all

The homozygous mthfr mutation limits your cells' ability to activate the dietary Folic Acid and the Folic Acid in the multivit.
The l-methylfolate is the active form of Folic Acid and can go right to work improving your neurotransmitter synthesis. But the mthfr mutations may also interfere with your complete utilization b12, ask you doctor if you need active b12, methylcobalamin, as well.
