In brief: Old saying

This relates to an earlier time when access to healthy foods and health information was less easy and less probable.
An apple has some vitamins and natural sugars that are a supplement to the bodily economy. Apples might have helped in the past and are still a good thing to eat. But probably in modern society will not affect overall health.
